Sundance: Competitive Tickling Explored In New Documentary ‘Tickled’

Who knew that there is big money to be made in the business of tickling? That’s exactly what the new Sundance documentary ‘Tickled’ is all about and you’ll never believe the crazy real life moments in the film!

This sounds like it could be insane! Director David Farrier explains that his new documentary ‘Tickled’ is, “a documentary about the sport of competitive endurance tickling.” What?! We didn’t even know there was such a thing. David’s an entertainment journalist back home in his native New Zealand and was intrigued when he heard about a Los Angeles company that once a month flies 20 people into the city, gives them $2,000 cash, a hotel room and daily per diems, and all they have to do is tickle each other nonstop!

David revealed that as he went on the journey to make the movie, he met a man from Florida who is a professional tickler for people who have a fetish for it. The money is great and he has a nice house, but inside he has a special chair that he straps people into and has a whole box of tickling instruments to use on them. YIKES!  What David wants people to take away from his film is that sometimes truth is stranger that fiction and he adds “I know that’s said a lot, but with this story it almost feels like it times ten.” We believe you David!

HollywoodLifers, do you like to be tickled? Or do you find it excruciating?
