The Art of Pie Throwing: A Sloppy History
Sep 02, 2021 Season 1 Episode 30
Callie Biggerstaff & Mark Renaudin

In our season 1 wrap up we explore the classic physical comedy gag commonly associated with  circus  and clowning, but this sticky slapstick act transcends circus and spread to mainstream by way of the silver screen.  We discuss the differences between circus and "hollywood" pie throwing, some famous pie fights, and the integral rules in the art of pie throwing.
