Event description
SILENT COMEDY GALA with Stephen Mangan

About this event

A spectacular big-screen classic comedy gala perfect for film and comedy fans of all ages.

Step inside Bristol’s spectacular Cathedral for a very special triple-bill of silent comedy classics on the big screen, accompanied by live music.

Join us for an evening of live music and classic onscreen comedies in an event showcasing your all-time favourite comedy stars. Your host for the evening will be the hugely gifted actor, comedian, presenter and writer, Stephen Mangan, who achieved fame through TV roles in Green Wing, Episodes, Dirk Gently and The Split (among others) and has subsequently also written a best-selling children’s book, Escape The Rooms.

Stephen is a huge Buster Keaton and Laurel & Hardy fan, and he can't wait to introduce Buster to new audiences at Slapstick Festival’s 17th annual Silent Comedy Gala.

The highlight of the evening is a complete screening of Buster Keaton’s last great film, the outstanding comedy masterpiece The Cameraman (1928). Accompanied by an improvised score from The European Silent Screen Virtuosi featuring Günter A. Buchwald, Frank Bockius and Romano Todesco, the film famously features several of the most celebrated sequences in cinema history.

Plus short comedies from the timeless Laurel & Hardy and thrill picture legend Harold Lloyd. This truly will be a thrill-packed evening - and one not to be missed!

Book early to avoid disappointment and get the best view in the house!
