Silent Comedy Gala
It’s back! Our annual Silent Comedy Gala returns for a lucky thirteenth addition – a unique celebration of the best onscreen classic silent comedy, live music and guest appearances by living legends of British comedy. As usual, the national comedy treasures of our own time come together to pay tribute to the legendary comedians of the past.
We’ll be showing Harold Lloyd’s 1925 classic, The Freshman, accompanied by the famous score composed by Carl Davis, with the 25-piece Bristol Ensemble conducted by Guenter A Buchwald.
Make sure you don’t miss out!
John Cleese is to appear as part of Slapstick’s Slap Up Feast of Fun – an amazing new comedic and musical fundraiser for the Slapstick Festival taking place 29th September 19:30 Colston Hall Bristol.
Chris Daniels, Slapstick Festival’s Director says “over the past six years I’ve been bowled over by the calibre and status of the performers willing to give up their time to help raise funds for the festival and this time we can reveal a bonafide living comedy legend, John Cleese. This is extraordinary. To our knowledge there won’t be a chance to see John doing anything like this elsewhere and with other performers now fighting to appear on the bill, watch this space for further announcements.”
To be hosted by the fantastic gagmeister Tim Vine this will be an unforgettable night. Also appearing with John Cleese, top impressionist Rory Bremner, the Python, Rutle and Bonzo Neil Innes, King-of-the-one-liners and ‘Sorry I Haven’t A Clue’ star Barry Cryer will team up with the inimitable Ronnie Golden to perform and delight audiences with music and, we hope, a selection of new parrot jokes.
