Apparently, TCM is partnering with Ball University once again (like it did for the Noir Summer of Darkness program a year ago). The online course associated with the slapstick series begins on August 28.

This series will be hosted by comic actor Greg Proops. Proops will be a familiar face to TCM fans. He previously hosted TCM's June 2014 Spotlight on pirate pictures, and subsequently appeared alongside Robert Osborne as TCM's guest programmer in November 2015. Proops has also hosted various events at the TCM Classic Film Festival in Hollywood.
