Stand-up comedian and writer Lucy Porter champions this rarely seen prolific performer who was a huge comedy star in the late teens and early 1920s. Howell was one of the few women permitted to be funny in her own right in the male-dominated world of silent screen comedy. Here, Lucy will introduce a selection of her funniest newly restored silent comedy shorts. Curated by Ben Model and Steve Massa with special thanks to the Library of Congress. 
With live piano accompaniment.
