I was discussing the roles female characters can take in slapstick with a fellow performer/writer the other day. The comedy that I am writing has a mixed cast and I would likem to involve the women in the slapstick - not only giving but recieving.
We were discussing how it is funny for a woman to hit a man, but not a man a woman. Women, I think, can hit women - that's fine (so to speak!). What can a man do to a woman in slapstick without crossing the boundaries of taste?
