Colston Hall 20:30 pm | Tickets: £11.50 (incl. booking fees)
If 2016 was your annus horribilis, what better way to spend January 21, the day after America’s presidential inauguration, than in the company of comedians and musicians proving that satire lives and that only comedy can save a world on the brink!
As Simon Wiesenthal put it, “Humour is the weapon of unarmed people” and that weapon was never better used than in Charles Chaplin’s great classic comedy-satire, THE GREAT DICTATOR (1940).
Chaplin has an almost mystical way of becoming ever more relevant as history moves on, and there was never a more fitting time than now for this great satire, with its plea for a world of peace, without totalitarianism, despotism, intolerance and racism.
Charlie will be enthusiastically supported, live, by present-day comedians and musicians including Ronnie Golden, Neil Innes and Grace Petrie.
With special thanks to Kate Guyonvarch and the Chaplin Estate.
Doors open 8 PM.
Film Running Time 125mins (Show ends approx 11.15pm).
