Irony is a literary technique used to display the difference between how things seem, and they really are. In most cases, irony is used for comedic purposes. Irony often examines extremely contrary situations. They are so extremely different than expected, that they are funny. Puns are often comedic as well. Puns are a play on words where a word has multiple meaning. Puns usually involve a homophone, homonym, or homograph to work.
