Comedy Movie Dog Names in Pop Culture

One of the biggest draws of the comedy genre is the relatability of the stories therein; most comedies take average, everyday scenarios and experiences and play them up to such a comedic extreme that audiences are left clutching their sides and raving with laughter while also hitting a few chords that are very close to home. Have you seen any comedies that were particularly relevant to you? Consider naming your dog after that film or after one of the main characters in that story. The film Juno, for instance, is a coming of age story that deals with some particularly weighty subject matter while also offering viewers plenty of sidesplitting laughs. Thus, the title of the film or the main character for which it's named after could provide a dog owner with an excellent opportunity to pay homage to one their favorite coming of age dramedies.  

Comedy films have also provided Cinema with some of the most memorable and enchanting characters to have ever graced the big screen; Charlie Chaplin's notorious Tramp character has become a staple of Cinematic history while the Wolfpack from the Hangover trilogy have also left their Mike Tyson tattoo shaped mark on film in their own right. The actors that bring these characters to life are also prime sources for comedy film loving dog owners to pool names from; Kevin Hart has made a name for himself as one of the hardest working comedians in show business while Tina Fey has proven herself to be a prolific artist both in front of and behind the scenes.
