**And the great slapstick performers become known for a particular kind of ritualistic performance – we begin to crave certain gestures, or certain ways of moving, as they are part of what we associate with that particular performer's brand of slapstick comedy.** I am looking forward to this program. So far what has intrigued me the most is the above statement. This one statement is very true, as I find myself doing exactly what this is talking about. If i'm watching a classic movie with one of the classic slapstick comedians such as "Abbot & Costello", "Laurel & Hardy", "The Three Stooges" or perhaps Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, Red Skelton, Jerry Lewis and Lucille Ball, I find myself waiting for the next pratfall or accident etc., and I'm never disappointed. Who are today's "Abbot & Costello" or "Lewis & Martin", "Buster Keaton" and "Charlie Chaplin?" I'm somewhat at a loss to name any up and comers who may be leading the way in 'Slapstick."........ Any thoughts..........?
