Dick Van Dyke on Slapstick

Thanks to Drew Richardson, Dramatic Fool for pointing this out — a hilarious mini-lecture about how slapstick is no longer funny, and then Mr. D.V.D. proceeds to schlap the shtick all over it.

This is an object lesson in how to build a physical routine where the audience know what’s coming, but they can’t help themselves from laughing anyway.
