...is my favorite kind of comedy. Whether it's somebody running head first into a post, or being hit on the head with a pipe wrench, or just falling on they're ass!
Of course the 3 Stooges come to mind. And Laurel and Hardy and Jim Carrey. And many more.

Love Benny Hill! When I was in NYC in 1979, I watched Benny Hill. the Addams Family , and Godzilla movies on channel 9 while smoking weed laced with angel dust! I didn't know it was laced with dust until my brother Mike told me after he smoked some with me.

it looks like he's doing a backwards moonwalk (if that makes sense?)

can't say slapstick is my favorite type of comedy but definitely when it's done well I love it. the NAKED GUN movies being a good example

EVIL DEAD II and ARMY OF DARKNESS are packed with it, Bruce Campbell was always a fan of that kind of comedy too, and he's great at it.

Dick Van Dyke talking about Slapstick. Apparently we're too civilized for it.

I dunno. I don't like the Keystone Cops or Buster Keaton either. I don't really know why. Or Harry Langdon.
Pathos and slapstick just don't mix for me. There is nil pathos in a Three Stooges short. It's like punk rock. It goes straight to the meat and never lets up.

TCM had some Buster Keaton shorts I watched them with my niece and nephew they were hilarious. The influence on cartoons was apparent.

in one, buster keatons house is on train tracks somehow, so he hitches his car to the house and tries to move it but the house holds onto the body of the car and he drives of in like the frame. in the end, he successfully moves the house and the train tracks turn around and it comes back and totally destroys the house

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
