You might go with the classic ones if asked to name a comedian. Bill Burr, Jim Carrey. However, we seem to underrate the comedians focusing on comics and literature. In this area, Mike Organisciak appears to have built quite a reputation. While you might not know the name (unless you’re a big fan), you will recognize the unique spice in his work — black comedy.

Dark or black, comedy can polarize people into two distinct groups. One side will laugh hysterically, while the other will let out a sea of boos. Dark humor comic strips seem to walk the line between the two perfectly. The person behind most of them? Mike Organisciak and his unexpected dark twists at the end. 

While he’s not the only one to use such a comedy style, Organisciak is the most famous one. Why? His comics got posted from Facebook mom groups to Reddit humor subreddits. Mike Organisciak comics are found in every corner of the internet (if you look for them). 

While you might know the person behind the comedy, you have to learn a thing or two about the comedy style itself. So, if you want to learn how dark comedy separated these humor comics from the rest — stick to the end of the post. Share the comics you like and your opinions about the twists in the comments.

What Qualifies as Dark Comedy?

The gallows humor earned itself a name for a reason. It’s a style of comedy that doesn’t shy away from taboo topics and makes fun of the darker things in life. Where traditional humor makes fun of family-friendly things, dark comedy keeps everything on the table. Global warming, dark twists, leaving kids on the street — if you can think about it, you can make fun of it. As long as it’s funny and twisted, it qualifies as dark humor.

If he said mum and dad and those were his adopted parents shouldn't his birth parents be the ones to respond?

Who Created Black Comedy?

Your generic dark humor comic strips didn’t start the genre. American writers Nathanael West and Vladimir Nabokov are said to be the first people to use dark comedy in their works. However, the name Black Comedy came from a paperback of the same name. As times changed and the internet became a thing, humor comics employed dark comedy. Thus, Mike Organisciak had quite the platform to build his career.

It's how we often treat emotional pain. We don't wonder what is the source, instead we do a lot of things to not think about it.

What Makes Dark Humor Comics So Popular?

Comics like these seem to employ the same tactic as Edgar Allen Poe. Make the stories short, best for one sitting reading, and that every written word adds something to the story. Mike Organisciak uses, for the most part, from two to four panels. The first panel introduces the situation, and the last presents a dark twist. The simple structure and quick reading made these comics skyrocket in popularity.

What Does a Dark Sense of Humor Mean?

Humor is a rather charming characteristic a person should have. A well-timed comedic saying can change the situation and ease some tension. However, what does it mean to have a dark sense of humor? Well, like these comics with unexpected endings? Chances are, you have a dark sense of humor.

And it’s a good thing! It shows that you will find something to laugh about even in the darkest moments. However, don’t go cracking jokes about every bad thing that happened to humanity. That would mean you have a sick sense of humor. Instead, if you get a flat tire — don’t panic. Remember that you will have a reason to buy some new tires.
