The era of English comedy began with Nicholas Udall’s play Ralph Roister Doister, staged in 1553-54. With Charlie Chaplin giving a solid face to silent comedy, the genre evolved to take the current all-encompassing form. Now comedy movies cover everything, from politics to taboo topics. After all, explaining things in a lighter tone with a whimsical touch is the easiest way to bring even the biggest issues to light.

Considering the massive number who enjoy a pack of laughter on Disney Plus, we are listing down the top 10 comedy movies available on the platform.
