The old comedy in Greek comedy was personal or political satire eg Aristophanes.In the 3 rd-4th centuries B.C with the rise of Macedona and decline of Greek power the old comedy was replaced by new comedy with plots and characters.The love intrigues& scheming servants were central to the new comedy.Menander,Philemon,Diphilus are writers of this genre.

Old Comedy vs New Comedy. New Comedy looks at human relations, while Old Comedy satirizes the life of the polis. For this reason Old Comedy is called political comedy and bears marked similarity to modern political Cartoons. New Comedy focused on family matters such as complications in love relationships.

When you feel like it is an out dated joke it is the old comedy. The new comedy is nothing but where you can't yourself to laugh.
