Comedy is the fourth studio album by Australian rock band Paul Kelly And The Messengers, originally released in 1991 via Mushroom Records in Australia and Doctor Dream Records in the US.

Comedy was to become the last studio album of new material that Paul Kelly released under the band name The Messengers. Another album would follow in 1992 called Hidden Things that would collate a number of B-Sides and stray non-LP tracks.

Paul Kelly And The Messengers gave their last performance in August 1991, with Kelly set to pursue a solo career. He explained his decision: "We forged a style together. But I felt if we had kept going it would have got formulaic and that's why I broke it up. I wanted to try and start moving into other areas, start mixing things up".

Comedy contained 18 tracks and was released as a double album on vinyl in 1991. Amongst the songs on this album is “From Little Things Big Things Grow”, which has gone onto become one of Paul Kelly’s most recognised compositions. This song was co-written by Kelly and Kev Carmody, an Australian indigenous singer-songwriter. The song highlights the Gurindji Strike and Vincent Lingiari as part of the Indigenous Australian struggle for land rights and reconciliation. A cover version that was released in May 2008 by The GetUp Mob, part of the GetUp! advocacy group, peaked at #4 on the Australian singles charts.

The song “Take Your Time” was later used in the Australian classic comedy film The Castle in 1997.

The album reached #12 on the Australian Albums charts and remained in the Top 50 for 12 weeks.

Check out the tracks:  Don’t Start Me Talking”; “Keep It To Yourself”; “Wintercoat”; “From Big Things Little Things Grow”; and “Take Your Time”.

This double album 2LP record set is a 2018 reissue on 180 gram vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve, pressed in Australia via Gawd Aggie Records.
