Slapstick Divas Hosted by Sally Phillips and Ronni Ancona

About this event

Welcome to an evening of brilliant, rarely seen silent comedies in Bristol’s magnificent cathedral as we celebrate the outstanding leading women in some of the funniest on-screen comedy from the golden age of silents.

Actor and comedian Sally Phillips is joined by Actor and Impressionist Ronni Ancona as they host this fascinating evening celebrating three silent comedy deities.

Highlights include a rare screening of SHOW PEOPLE (1928) featuring Marion Davies, the silent starlet who is still reaching new heights today as one of the stand-out characters in the recent Oscar-winning Netflix drama MANK (2020). In addition shorts from Mabel Normand, part of the inspiration for the Tony Award nominated musical MACK & MABEL, and the first female director Alice Guy-Blaché.

Slapstick is always proud to present world-class live musical accompaniments for its silent comedy screenings, from solo piano improvisations to full orchestral scores and this year we have an exceptional line up of talent.

At our “Slapstick at the Cathedral” the hugely talented multi-instrumentalist Stephen Horne is stepping in with an ensemble of exceptional musical talent to replace the previously advertised musical accompaniment.

Günter A. Buchwald, Frank Bockius and Romano Todesco will not be performing as the European Silent Screen Virtuosi due to covid related complications. In addition we are delighted to welcome back the super talented pianist John Sweeney .

This will be a BSL Interpreted Event
