The League of Gentlemen
The Story of Slapstick charts the history of the world's most popular comedy genre. Whether you're three or fifty three we all seem to love physical humour. It doesn't matter if they're slapped, banged or walloped, there's a simple glee in the misfortune of others. The most twisted twist in the slapstick story came from the small village of Royston Vasey. The League of Gentlemen with their combined love of physical comedy and British horror took us to a somewhat darker side of slapstick. Twisted visual creations like clumsy vet Dr Chinnery disturbed us with horrifically comic slapstick.
