Egyptian comedy series has been the winning horse in Ramadan drama in terms of viewership for many years. However, with the decline of those works in the past few years, the current season’s works came to confirm that the crisis of the lack of specialized authors in this genre, along with the diarrhea of the participating heroes, caused a decline in the audience’s appetite for comedy.

The idea and scenario are among the elements that harmed the series “Fares Without a Passport”, starring the artist Mustafa Qamar. The action events that take place in separate and connected episodes are considered a consuming and traditional idea that was presented in 1990 in the series “Wanted Arousa” starring Ahmed Badir and Younis Shalaby, where Throughout the episodes, the two protagonists continue their journey in search of the right bride, as is the case with “Faris”, the hero of the series, who continues to search for a girl to marry.
The author of the work, Fouad Al-Shandawili and its director, Moataz Emad, also tried to rely on guests of honor in the episodes, similar to the experiences of comedy works in the past years. Such as “Al-Wad Syed Al-Shahat” and “Khalsana B Sheyaka”.
The emergence of female artists; Like Bushra, Asmaa Abu Al-Yazid, Mai Selim, Mai Kassab, Dalia Al-Beheiri, and here are Shiha, guests of honor who did not adequately serve the work, who suffers from poor script and directing as well, and resorting to old and consumable “fatigue.
The best father and the oldest comedy
The hero of the series “Best Father” Ali Rabei relied on improvisation in the scenes, and the casting of old jokes and jokes, which were used on social media platforms due to a period of weakness in the work, in addition to the lack of influence of the script or development in writing, starting with the idea and the series’s reliance on irony Talent programs and competitions.
Writing isn’t the only weak component of the series; The representation is also weak, so there is no fingerprint for the director in managing the actors to present them well, so the performance of the series’ hero, Ali Rabie Fateer, came alongside the rest of the participating actors.
Attempting to attract the audience through the participation of a child, and relying on making statements that are larger than his age is something that is taken in a negative way about the work; To speak in outward and inappropriate terms in many scenes.
The list of comedies also includes two series, “Zaki Naguib Zarkash” and “Leave Your Mind From Zizi,” which is an inappropriate classification for the two works.
The series “Zaki Naguib Zarkash” by the artist Yahya Al-Fakharani since the first episodes is taking place in a dramatic social context. The presence of dialogue sentences that carry some humor and comedy in the scenes of Al-Fakharani or Islam Ibrahim and Karim Afifi, the participants in the series, does not mean that it is classified as a comic act.
The series took the first ten episodes in an attempt to identify the heroes of the work and the relationship of the hero “Yahya Al-Fakharani” Najib Zarkash with the three children.
The dramatic plots are weak, and the success of the series relied on good acting performance in addition to the presence of a strong director, Shady El Fakharany.
As for “keep your mind off Zizi”, the work is a social and romantic one that also carries some comic situations, and the series relies on dealing with a serious issue, which is the society’s treatment of people with mental illness, which required the presence of many sad and difficult scenes.
The general lines, through which the events unfold, make it closer to social drama rather than comedy, despite the presence of some funny paradoxes.
Despite the wrong classification of the series; However, it is considered one of the series that made a mark in the season at the level of writing, acting and directing as well.
Exit a “parallel world”
Finally, the comedy series “A Parallel World” starring Donia Samir Ghanem came out after filming was disrupted due to her infection with the Coronavirus, which was scheduled to be shown in the second half of the holy month of Ramadan, to reduce the comedies participating in the dramatic season.
