- This paper aims to explore the reason why taboo language use is frequent during the comical interlude in Javanese shadow puppet performances. The data were taken from a recorded shadow puppet performance in East Java. During the recording, there is much taboo language use by the comedians and the puppeteer. This usage is analysed from the viewpoint of comedy show and linguistic performance. The results show that the use of taboo language use is not regarded as something sacred or offensive in the context of conversation during the comical interlude. The appearance of taboo language use which is perceived as dark humour evokes the feeling of being entertained by violating the social norms.
