Slapstick has received peripheral scholarly attention despite its unabated popularity. Notwithstanding this scholarly lacuna, slapstick, as a form of physical/body-related humor, stands positioned in a long history in nearly all areas of cultural production. It appears regularly since the 16th century both as a mode of expression, as well as theme in theater and film, in literature and the plastic arts, even in music.
