Buster Keaton featured on PBS documentary Make `Em Laugh

The PBS documentary about American comedy, Make `Em Laugh,

Hosted by Billy Crystal, tonight's episode will feature Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. For those TIVO owners and second shift workers, it appears that it will air again on Monday, January 26, at 1:00 am.

Make 'Em Laugh:

The Funny Business of America: The Knockabouts: Slip on a Banana Peel: A focus on slapstick comedy recalls the antics of Charlie Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy, the Three Stooges, Martin and Lewis, the Marx Brothers and Lucille Ball.

Where's Rodney when you need him?
