The purpose of this study is to look at Iranian Comedy during the 1983-2013 from an aesthetic point of view. Using the analytical tools of the genre theory and considering the variables such as the generic crossroads (the counter culture vs. cultural values), and the hybridization status, analyzes the best-selling statistical samples of comedy in Iranian cinema. Data are collected through documentary, library and observational study and by a descriptive-analytical approach, the relationship the generic crossroads and the hybridization status in each sample is examined. On the one hand, the statistical samples examined indicate the ability to hybridize the comedy genre with various genres and endorse the process of comedy genre. On the other hand, the hybridized genres provide a platform for genre counter culture dimension. The more tension the counter culture and cultural values is, the greater the impact of the genre will be palpable.
