This paper aims at exploring the use of code mixing in the comedy program of Opera Van Java (abbreviated OVJ). The results show that there are two forms of code mixing used, namely lexical and phrasal code mixing. Besides, this study reveals the use of two types of code mixing, namely outer code mixing and inner code mixing. The inner code mixing in that program can be divided into Indonesian informal variety, Jakarta Indonesian dialects, Sundanese code mixing, and Javanese code mixing. While the outer code mixing found in OVJ are English and Arabic code mixing. Further analysis also shows that that there are some causes of code-mixing in OVJ, namely code mixing that occurs due to the background of the speaker, the relationship between the narrator and hearer, and due to the situation of speech. The underlying forces affecting the occurrence of code mixing in OVJ are the area of origin and religious background of speakers. Additionally, an intimate relationship between the speaker and the hearer also triggers code mixing because those speakers may be more relaxed and comfortable in choosing which language code to use.
