Abstract

The author analyzes the types of comic in the discourse of the Revolution of Dignity (2013—2014) in comparison with analogous elements of the discourse of the Orange Revolution (2004—2005). The author states that both discourses contain strong burlesque element, though it narrows as the last revolution bursts with tragic events of February 2014. Meanwhile, the satirical element gets stronger and more diverse. Pastiche also appears as not satirical, but ironic parody.
