Make ‘Em Laugh
Slapstick is the UK’s biggest annual festival of silent and classic screen comedy and is now in its 15th year. Alongside the many screenings there will be appearances by Jimmy Cricket, Dad’s Army vicar Frank Williams, talks by Charlie Chaplin’s biographer David Robinson and a tour of early comedy animations by Peter Lord. The festial will also feature the first reunion in decades of the Little and Large comedy duo.
Festival director Chris Daniels says: “As befits our 15th anniversary, this is our biggest Slapstick to date – a true celebration of silent, visual and classic comedy, featuring an impressive array of top comedy talent from many different decades, from the earliest days of cinema to current day favourites and with welcome contributions from some irrepressible veterans including festival stalwart Barry Cryer. A sure way to beat the winter blues. Don’t miss!”
