West Country-based NHS doctor, writer, broadcaster and comedian Dr Phil Hammond is joining our all-star cast fund-raiser, hosted by Al Murray at Colston Hall, Bristol, on Thursday 11 June (7.30pm start) in support of our annual Slapstick Festival.
Dr Phil says “Laughter is the best medicine. But Slapstick gives you far more than laughter. There's music, companionship, history, poignancy, fabulous stories and a who's who
gathering of comedians going back 80 years. It's unmissable and I'm proud to be a part of it."
On March 20th we presented our third Aardman Slapstick Comedy Legend Award to an undisputed National Treasure and king of the one-liners Barry Cryer OBE .
Sorry I Haven't a Clue sparring partner, Graeme Garden, hosted the sell-out event celebrating Barry’s extraordinary comedy career which spans over five decades.

For Harry Hill fans, Stand Up 4 Slapstick will be especially significant as it is his only live date this year.
Harry says: "I’m delighted to be appearing at Stand Up 4 Slapstick in June in support of Bristol’s Slapstick Festival. It’s the hardest of all comedy to get right, but when it works it crosses generations and reduces all ages to happy, helpless laughter - slapstick is worth celebrating and saving." Find out more HERE
