My first misadventure with a Biffle and Shooster short was at Cinevent in 2018 with a crowd of early comedy buffs and the crowd loved it!
28 June 2018 | by larry41onEbaySee all my reviews

... so of course, I had to buy the DVD set "The Misadventures of Biffle and Shooster!" to see more of these charming, funny shorts and LOTS of extras and outtakes!

And if you are a fan of the short films of Laurel & Hardy, Abbott and Costello, Wheeler & Woolsey, Smith and Dale, the Three Stooges, Martin and Lewis, Shaw & Lee, Clark and McCullough, Weber and Fields, the Ritz Brothers, vaudeville and burlesque, etc. You will enjoy these recently and lovingly recreated "new" comedy shorts created by the Orson Welles of Corny comedy, Mike Schlesinger and his talented team of rascals starring Nick Santa Maria (Biffle) and Will Ryan (Shooster).

Each short is a mix of clever dialogue, deftly delivered asides, freshly recycled stage schtick and catchy tunes. Be sure to pay attention to both the opening and closing credits as they are filled with tributes and in-jokes as well as well-earned acknowledgment to a bunch of talented artist reviving the best of the good old days.
