TICKLED, a documentary about the bizarre and threatening world of competitive tickling, is explored with director David Farrier. We examine the pushback the doc has received from the competitive tickling community, the lighter world of tickling fetishes and the doc’s premiere at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. Finally, we take a look at the trailer for TICKLED, in this episode of BYOD hosted by Ondi Timoner.
David Farrier has been a television journalist in New Zealand for more than a decade, often covering light entertainment and “quirky” news. It was in this way that he came across the weird world of Competitive Endurance Tickling. TICKLED is David’s directorial debut and first feature film.
