Several years ago I read about an English television special from Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean). It was his Guide to Visual Comedy. I eventually found a company that produced NTSC VHS tapes of British imports, and I got a copy. It is a fun and informative introduction to some basic techniques of physical comedy. He shows clips and acts out examples of what he is talking about.
It was uploaded to youtube, but 1 of the 5 parts has been blocked. I’m guessing because it contained a clip that the original producers didn’t want online. Also, embedding is disabled. The program was called “Laughing Matters.” and here it has subtitles in Dutch, I’m guessing.
