Two pioneer women in comedy.
23 July 2002 | by (Brunswick, Maine.) – See all my reviews

Thelma Todd and Patsy Kelly were the Abbott & Costello or Laurel and Hardy of the femme comedy world. These two women are absolutely hilarious! Their comedy still plays very well today.

In this comedy short Thelma and Patsy takes jobs in a department store where they demonstrate appliances in a make shift mock kitchen setup. They also demonstrate the beds as they have nowhere else to sleep, so they sleep in the store window.

If you like the three stooges shorts, or little rascals shorts, or Abbott & Costello or Laurel & hardy then you will love Thelma and Patsy in this wonderfully hilarious short.
