The host for this year’s Gala Show is the incomparable impressionist and comedian, Rory Bremner who will introduce the triple bill of laugh out loud comedy classics.
The spirit of the 1920s & 30s is embodied in a special appearance from singer, actor, and national treasure Roy Hudd who will be making a rare appearance to perform as that ‘cheeky chappie’ of music hall fame, Max Miller.
Harold Lloyd’s The Freshman (1925) will be shown in full at our annual gala show, accompanied by the 25-piece Bristol Ensemble orchestra conducted by Guenter A Buchwald, playing composer Carl Davis’s brilliant score.
In addition, two classic short comedies, The Finishing Touch (1928) starring Laurel & Hardy PLUS Buster Keaton’s The High Sign (1921) will be shown, accompanied by The European Silent Screen Virtuosi.
Ronnie Golden, fantastic comedian guitarist and singer will also be performing at the gala night in the foyer from 6:30-7:15pm. Founder of the band The Fabulous Poodles, Golden then swiftly moved onto stand-up as a member of The Comic Strip (regulars included Rik Mayall, Ben Elton and Alexei Sayle.) Golden is now the frontman for Ronnie and the Rex, and writes songs and sketches for BBC 4’s The Right Time.
Slapstick’s Gala writes the Bristol Post, is “a Bristol Institution”.
Book early to be sure you are a part of it.
