Hollywood Home Improvements

Leave it to Hollywood to make something as serious as home improvement into a laughing matter. Home improvement woes are a perfect plot for television, comedy and movies. In fact, in recent years, home improvement topics have done quite well in Hollywood and have made many people big stars. Home improvement is such an interesting topic because it is usually something complex that rarely goes off without a hitch. It can make for some humorous situations. You can think of it as a situation comedy. Lucille Ball would have fun doing a skit with wallpaper. Imagine just what she could do with the paste flying, ripping paper and the many other humorous situations that could happen. Home improvement just has what its takes to create a funny and humorous situation. Comedy teams were quite popular in the Depression and during World War II. Comedy teams like the Three Stooges and Laurel and Hardy often had audiences rolling with their humorous takes on home improvement. They would take a simple task and somehow turn it into a huge mess. Many people could relate and it was fun to laugh at their antics.

A popular television show called Home Improvement, made men everywhere start getting a little respect fort their work in the home. Tim Allen’s clumsy and accident prone character could make the average guy look like the worlds best handyman. He covered a wide range of home improvement projects on the show from tiling a bathroom to wall mount faucets and everyone ended with a laugh and usually, a little pain for Tim ‘the tool man’ Taylor.
