Tickled documentary to air on HBO with bonus follow-up special


David Farrier and Dylan Reeve’s documentary Tickled is ostensibly about the “competitive endurance tickling” scene, but that doesn’t really capture just how surprising and weird the film truly is. For anyone who hasn’t seen it, HBO will be airing Tickled on February 27 (at which point it will also hit HBO Now and HBO Go), but even if you have seen it, HBO will be throwing in a special bonus to give you even more information about the ridiculous world of Tickled.

According IndieWire, HBO’s presentation of Tickled will be accompanied by The Tickle King, a 20-minute follow-up made up of never-before-seen footage It will reportedly involve the “bizarre and unsettling things” that happened to Farrier and Reeve as the began taking Tickled to film festivals and theaters last year, and it will feature the two of them beginning to “answer questions that remained once the credits rolled on Tickled, including whether the disturbing behavior they uncovered will ever come to an end.”
