    Thinking this refers to the Feste/Sir Toby Belch/Sir Andrew/Maria scenes?

    Various strands of humour:
    - there's the comic punning/wordplay/innuendos throughout most of the scenes these characters are together, focusing particularly on the Toby/Andrew comedy double act.
    - then there's the latent cruelty inherent in comedy demonstrated in act iv scene 2 When Feste is dressed as Sir Topas. Also shown when Toby makes jokes at Andrews expense.
    - dramatic irony (which would have been amusing for the audience) i.e. the confusion between Viola and Sebastian, the man Olivia is in love with is in fact a woman etc.

    do you feel that this could tie in with signs of rebellion and groups of allegiance?
    only, i didn't study the book from that particular angle i'm afraid - unless it was worded differently..

    hope this helps :]
