Hutu and Tootsie

Hutu and Tootsie were vaudeville characters.

their act was more violent than contemporaries Laurel and Hardy.

the dynamic was more Punch and Judy than Abbott and Costello.

an average scene involved Hutu gang raping Tootsie through multiple wounds made with a machete and typically ended with Hutu affixing Tootsie's severed head to a pike. the two would then take a bow.

being essentially free of dialogue their transition to radio was a dismal failure although they later achieved mild success touring the american South
where they were hailed as the Nat Turner alternative to the Amos and Andy Sambo archetype.
