The classic ‘slipping on a banana peel’ joke performed by 3 outstanding comedians from the early years.

First is Charlie Chaplin from the film By The Sea (1915). He wasn’t the first to do the classic banana peel gag, although by dropping the peel himself, he makes the joke his own.

The second clip is Buster Keaton in ‘The High Sign’ from 1921. It’s a few years later and he adds a new angle on the joke, typical to his outrageous style of comedy.

Finally Harold LLoyd in ‘For Heaven’s Sake’ in 1926 takes the joke to absudity. Where next?
