Many of the readings of Calderón’s The Physician of His Honour has focused on the function of the comical character Coquín in the dominant serious atmosphere, and specially on the teeth’s bet with the king don Pedro, which has produced some erotic interpretations that we may examine. This joke as well as the general range and sense of the comicalness in the play makes only sense in the light of the bufonesque and courtly tradition, which is based on a concept of stupid and violent humor, at the same time defined in the perfect imbrication of laugh in Calderón’s tragedies.
