Tragedy- the fall of a tragic hero
Comedy- funny based on words

Comedy in the traditional sense (ancient Greece and Rome; Shakespeare) is not "funny" in our modern-day understanding.
Notice that in Shakespeare's tragedies, just about everyone dies by the end of each play. In his comedies, however, that doesn't happen.
Read that first paragraph VERY CAREFULLY.
