Summary/Abstract: The strategies in Branislav Nušić’s comedies, observed in analysis from the perspective of linguistic stylistics, through the interdisciplinary method, described, named and justified in the present work, are: the effect of fireworks, a/symmetry; the effect of expecting the unexpected; the co-ordinate system for the development of comedic action; the sign character of objects; the “closed” rondo-composition, against the background of the linguistic and stylistic techniques typical of the writer of comedies and elements of his poetics: cumulation, abundance, aberration, irradiation and integration of stylistic means from all linguistic levels forming the stylistic code of the comic (not considered in detail). The key scenes that served as a basis for reflection are from the comedy “A Member of the Parliament”, but the conclusions are also based on “A Suspicious person”, “PhD”, and “The Cabinet Minister’s Wife”.
