Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

"Now, I don't want to get off on a rant here..."

Dennis Miller
Cquote2.svg

People ranting about their political opinions, religious beliefs or similar usually don't intend to be entertaining. Some, however, have realized that serious messages can't be distinguished from parodies anyway—so why not make the most of it?

And thus, some comedians, propagandists, and other characters chose to present their opinions with a lot of attitude, making rants designed to be entertaining while still communicating a serious message.

Not to be confused with The Rant, the writer's comments alongside a webcomic.

Examples of Rant Comedy appearing in other contexts:

Live Action TV

  • Coupling usually had one Once A Series, when Straight Man and Author Avatar Steve would really break into stride and dish out an epic rant leaving every other character in stunned silence.
  • In Scrubs, Dr. Cox likes to incorporate actual points inside long funny rants.

Web Comics
