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.


  1. Looking forward to reading your new book. Where can I get a copy of it.

    Great photos from "A King in New York". The scene of George Truzzi and Lauri Lupino Lane messing each other up is one of my favorites.

    There is a large group of gay men who like to get wet and messy while formally dressed in a tuxedo or a business suit. I get together with a few guys regularly for a well dressed gunging (sloshing).
