First there was The Artist, then Ant and Dec say they’re going to make a slapstick film, and now TV legend Matt Lucas is in on the game!
Visual comedy is certainly de rigeur! Quite a change from the generally held opinion of just a few years ago that visual comedy was the lowest form of comedy!
The Artist was a wonderful film – but more an homage than a attempt at contemporary visual comedy. The forthcoming Ant and Dec film should be interesting but I have no idea how they’ll play it.
But the Lucas project, working title, “Pompidou”, is likely to be exceptional. Lucas will do an amazing job – he is disciplined, funny, quirky, and original.
