For theorist Mikhail Bakhtin, humor has significant political use for the subaltern. Rather than mirth for its own sake, they deploy it as a means of resistance to the dominant culture. Humor thus provides them the means of resistance and a tool to undermine officialdom by turning political insignia into an object of ridicule. Many scholars have since then located humor and performances that induce laughter among subaltern population within this Bakhtinian intellectual traditions. Humor is not humor for its sake; it is political and weaponized to different ends.
