Research Questions
The Problem Statement
Can stand-up comedy be a locus of socio-linguistic investigation by giving credit to the analysis of the stand-up comedian's humoristic discourse?
To analyse the orator-comedian’s language in use which constructs his discourse to function humorously and to fulfill intentional meanings.
The Objectives
1- What makes the stand- up comedian’s discourse funny and humorous?
2- What is the purpose behind the comedian’s humoristic discourse?
3- Is the comedian's code switching socially motivated?
Hypotheses

1- The comedian uses a figurative language embodied in a chunk of opposite scripts which mark his/her performance.

2- The comedian unveils the Algerian identity as well as its socio-cultural realities in his/her sketches.
3- Code choice in his/her humoristic discourse is unmarked pursuing the norms of the Algerian community s/he belongs to.

Research Instruments
Results
1- Laughter generally emanates at the end of the Joke.
What is the hidden message of the comedian's humoristic discourse?
2- Functional/ Pragmatic Analysis
Results:

The comedian does things with his words: he transmits an implicit message through his joke, by using humour as a social corrective, and observational comedy to reveal the Algerian identity and its socio-cultural realities.


3- Sociolinguistic Analysis
why does the stand-up comedian switch between different languages in his sketches?

Participants' View about the Humorist's CS.

Results:
1- The comedian Knows that his audience is linguistically heterogeneous, this is why he often switches between AA and other codes to converge and demonstrate his solidarity with them as well as to reveal his Algerian identity.
2- His switching is governed by external factors like the setting of the story, its topic or depending on the participants incarnated in the joke.
3- switching is marked to expresses several functions such as quoting, reiterating for emphasis, or purposefully to have a humorous impact.
Conclusion
This research project is just suggestive but not conclusive. It allows further analysis of non-verbal and para-verbal humour.
Limitation
Attending live shows of the stand-up comedian.
