All Fall Down
The Craft and Art of Physical Comedy
A Blogopedia by John Towsen
A fabulous blog containing many great links to other physical comedy resources. Here’s a bit about it: Welcome to the All Fall Down blog, an exploration of all aspects of physical comedy, from the historical to the latest work in the field, from the one-man show to the digital composite, from the conceptual to the nuts & bolts how-to. Be prepared for a broad definition of physical comedy (mine!) and a wide variety of approaches. Physical comedy is a visual art form, so there’ll be tons of pictures and videos, but also some substantial writing and research, including scripts and probably even some books.
