Iannucci on Keaton

Posted in Comedians on February, 26 2006 6:15 PM

Armando Iannucci, one of Britain's foremost satirists and responsible for The Friday (and Saturday) Night Armistice and many other projects, has written an article on the great silent-movie comedian Buster Keaton for The Guardian newspaper. The article discusses the genius of Keaton, and in particular how he took the techniques of modernism and post-modernism to the field of comedy pretty much before they were even invented.

It's a great short read, well worth a look.
