The article refers to conception of carnivalisation of literature as initiated by Mikhail Bakhtin, but is composed of a completely different mode and formulates conclusions with respect the newest scientific stances. Particular comedies are looked at form the perspective of multitext, which leads to formulation of a final conclusion that in the minstrel society there was no work but play recognized as a form of everyday conduct. The play was made the source of incomes, and thus allowed them to maintain the minimum level required for existence. If they started some work, they aimed at cheating and making fun of gullible burghers to earn at their cost and 'joyfully romp' while staging another play at an improvised stage.
