I see you like slapstick comedy. I don’t know if he qualifies as slapstick, but have you tried the works of P.G. Wodehouse? I can recommend almost all of his work, but I especially love Something Fresh, Damsel in Distress, and The Girl on the Boat. re Short stories, his “Mulliner” tales are available in film via “Wodehouse Theater,” which portrayed they faithfully. Very funny!
Have a great day and happy writing!

Hi, James! Nice to run into a fellow Stillers fan… I love Wodehouse! If I ever end up writing humo(u)r, I’ll definitely have been shaped heavily by him. Thanks for reaching out!
