Just check some classics by Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, and you will know precisely what we are saying. A renowned composer of film music can offer you multitudes of such examples.

For a light-hearted comedy, something poppy and fun goes well with the atmosphere. A fun and loud music also reflect the excitement of a person. In some flicks, a character is not doing much action, perhaps due to shock or surprise. For such scenes, fast jazzy rhythm and loud drums can be used to reflect the state of mind of that character.

It is sometimes okay to go over the top if your funny scene demands it. You need not always remain subtle, as it is not a serious drama.
