Abstract

This research aims to describe the critical discourse analysis, the perception of comic and audience, and the content analysis of Dzawin’s standup comedy humor discourse. Dzawin is the third winner of Indonesia Stand Up Comedy contest season 4 (SUCI 4) held by Kompas TV in 2016 and also the third winner of Maharaja Lawak Mega, one of the biggest comedy competitions in Malaysia in 2017. The qualitative descriptive method was employed in analyzing the data. The data were obtained from the video transcript of Dzawin accessed from YouTube. The data were then analyzed by using equivalent/ matching method (Padan Method). Additionally, the techniques used were the connect and compare distinguishing technique (teknik hubung banding membedakan/HBB Technique, hereafter), and connect and compare equation technique (teknik hubung banding menyamakan/HBS Technique, hereafter). The results show that Dzawin comedy heavily related to social-cultural construct discourse. Dzawin’s humor discourse clearly shows negative and positive style where he humbly criticizes himself but simultaneously criticizes the society. Dzawin also appears to be a comic delivering the material not only to entertain but also to give some information to his audience. He somehow manages to deliver a moral value on his material of humor discourse. Finally, Dzawin’s humor discourse exposes social problems occurred in Indonesia and attempts to persuade people to fix bad behavior.
