I'm wondering if anyone else has made that connection.

Not at all.
If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

Unless Chris Farley was around in the 1750s, the answer is probably no.

I'm not sure how anyone could even make that connection? Have you actually seen the show?

@mybigsplash actually I did see the show and kind of agree with you...the issue is basically any white "fat" guy physically comedic roles can be be interpreted as a chris Farley role

It's way more sophisticated than anything Chris Farley ever did. I loved it (and was afraid it would be just that, to be honest). It's my favorite new play of the season.

Yeah. Like Falstaff. Or Santa Claus. Or Winnie-the-Friggin'-Pooh.

Sheesh.

Winnie-the-Pooh was brown.

I was actually shocked at how little slapstick there actually is. I found there to be far more verbal wordplay than full on slapstick.

I knew you were going to say that! But I couldn't think of a third fat white character and Winnie-the-Pooh just popped into my head.

Given that "One Man, Two Guvnors" is not three hours long (I saw it yesterday), the answer to the question that is the post title is: NO.
