Paul Merton’s Silent Clowns
This article is from 2006.
Merton’s abridged version of his recent TV show about silent film comedians amounts to little more than a taster. The films of Arbuckle, Chaplin, Keaton and Laurel & Hardy are gems, and it’s good to watch them with live piano accompaniment and a guffawing crowd. (Miles Fielder)
