Make 'Em Laugh: The Funny Business Of America

The Knockabouts: Slip On A Banana Peel/The Groundb

Season 1, Episode 3 of 6

Physical comedy and slapstick have always found rich soil in America. From the mastery of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton to the computer-generated antics that helped transform Jim Carrey into a human cartoon, slapstick has evolved into a sophisticated art, stretching the boundaries of time and space. This episode explores the comic genius of teams like Laurel and Hardy, the Three Stooges, Martin and Lewis and the Marx Brothers, and the one and only Lucille Ball.
