The relevance theory proposed by Sperber and Wilson on the premise that communication depends on cognition and the communication principle is only obtained if the addresser and addressee understand the context. The continuity of communication flows in accordance with how the relevance principle is utilized. The relevance principle must be owned by every participant of the conversation by assuming that other speakers have tried to be as relevant as possible. Using the relevance theory of Sperber and Wilson, the author attempted to analyze Pandji Pragiwaksono's speech in his Stand Up Comedy Concert titled "Mesakke Bangsaku" on 21 December 2013 at Taman Ismail Marzuki, Cikini, Central Jakarta. Stand Up Comedy is known as an intellectual comedy because both comics and audiences require extensive and relevant knowledge to make comedy feel more alive and make laughter. The formulation of the research problem summarized from this phenomenon is how Pandji’s speech causing the laughter of the audiences can be explained its relevance. This research aims to explain the contextual linkages and implicatures in the Pandji's speech. To achieve the result according to the research problem and the expected purpose, this research uses descriptive method of qualitative approach. Briefly, this research obtained results showing that there are relevance tactics and contextual changes in the material presented by the comic. Thus, these demand the audiences to use intuitive relevance reinforced by the effects of the context in order to get the climax of humor. In addition, the implicatures contained in the Pandji Pragiwaksono's speech are mostly satire about the condition of Indonesian Nation.
