The Art of Slosh
I have just completed my book The Man Who Mistook a Carpet Roll for a Woman, and other silent film comedy misadventures. Part of the book deals with a form of comedy called "slosh." A comedy team that specialized in slosh was Lauri Lupino Lane and George Truzzi. Chaplin featured the team in A King in New York (1957). Lane, pictured on the right as the paperhanger, was son of comedy legend Lupino Lane.
