Paramount Comedy 2 is a television channel shown in Ireland and the United Kingdom. The channel was previously a so-called 'time-shuffle' service, offering programmes from Paramount Comedy at different times.

It launched on 1 September 2003 on Sky Digital, and followed soon after on 22 September 2003 on Telewest and 15 October 2003 on NTL. Unlike Paramount Comedy 1, Paramount Comedy 2 does not (yet) have a separate adstream for Ireland. Image File history File links ParamountComedy2005. ...

Opera (1648 words)
Whether the words or the music are paramount has been the subject of debate since the 17th century.
In these early Baroque operas, broad comedy was blended with tragic elements in a mix that jarred some educated sensibilities, sparking the first of opera's many reform movements, which came to be associated with the poet Pietro Trapassi, called Metastasio, whose librettos helped crystallize opera seria's moralizing tone.
Comedy in Baroque opera was reserved for opera buffa, in a separately developing tradition that partly derived from the commedia dell'arte.
