A while back there seemed to be a trend of comedy posters using very bright lime greens as background, in an apparent attempt to run away from the classic solid white background. Thankfully the trend has disappeared. I hope the above poster doesn’t mark the start of a trend of comedy posters with bright yellow backgrounds.
The “Apatow Style” comedy poster has been a bit overused, but in part that is because it gets a lot of things right. One is the softer backgrounds that are much easier in the eyes than either white or something like the above. They complement the foreground instead of distracting us from it.
