How does Shakespeare successfully create comedy in Act 1 of Twelfth Night? Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night takes place during celebrations when the social hierarchy seems to be nearing towards non-existent and rankings seem to be overrun by excess partying. Tricking each other and speaking in puns was common at this time meaning Shakespeare could easily incorporate humour into the play. Through physical comedy, wit and wordplay and the use of dramatic irony, Shakespeare brings out the elements of comedy to the audience, keeping them entertained throughout. In Act 1 Scene 1 we are introduced to the Duke, Curio and Valentine.
Which I could see the song playing in the background while Laertes returns from France to discover his fathers death and his sisters ill madness. Ophelia supposively thinks she gives him herbs and flowers when they’re actually weeds. Then shortly after Claudius appears and convinces Laertes that Hamlet is solely the one for the kings death and later on finds out that Hamlet is still alive.

He tells her that she is in Illyria, which is ruled by Duke Orsino.

Twelfth night is based upon the twelfth night of the Christmas holiday. In Shakespearean times, this holiday was celebrated as a festival in which everything was turned upside down – much like the upside – down, chaotic world of Illyria in the play. In Twelfth night we witness the typical conventions of a dramatic comedy where natural order is disturbed as the characters journey to discover themselves amongst all the chaos and confusion. As the play unfolds the audience do not gain any in depth knowledge of the characters, conclusions are made by the characters choices and attitudes.

The pizza parlor where all the teenagers from Illyria Prep like to hang out in She’s The Man, is called Cesario’s, which is Viola’s alias in Twelfth Night. Duke says the famous Shakespearean quote: ‘Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them!’ “Illyria", the name of the school, is also the name of the country in which Twelfth Night is set, and "Cornwall", the name of Viola's former school, is the name of the country Viola and Sebastian were originally from in the play. In the Twelfth Night, Viola had to pretend to be a man so she could make a living on the new island.
