Mediocre Comedy Short
10 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

Guess I'm the first person to review this short. Wish I had something better to say about it. It's a fairly corny little comedy about a guy who can't pay his dinner bill so he's put to work waiting tables. As you might expect from having seen anything ever, comedy ensues. Or at least it's supposed to. Instead you get lame gags like fake mustaches and pulling a guy's toupee off in public. It's all harmless enough but not very sophisticated or funny for that matter. This is my first exposure to Charley Chase and I don't think I'll be calling him one of the comedy greats anytime soon. For some reason he seems very pleased by his own antics, even making himself laugh. Some of the background players laughed too. I guess you had to be there. Oh I did like cutie Joyce Compton though. She alone was worth watching it.
