Leaving Treadmarkz Across the Universe

Wheelchairs as Props in Physical Comedy

by Treadmarkz,

You don’t often see wheelchairs being used as props in physical comedy. Having said that, this video is probably one of the best examples I have seen in a while. It’s from the World Wrestling Entertainment’s Smackdown! The woman in this clip, Vickie Guerrero is not really disabled. It’s all part of the storyline. I don’t know, maybe it’s just me, but I think wrestling is funny to begin with.
Other than this, the best example I can think of is in Naked Gun when O.J. Simpson’s character rolls down the steps at Anaheim Stadium and gets catapulted over the gate.
