Slapstick 2009 Festival with Tim & Graeme
13/11/2008 00:00 GMT

Posted by lisa

Here's some early information about the Slapstick 2009 Festival from  Tim & Graeme are schedule to appear at the festival again this year.

Slapstick returns for its fifth year to bring laughter to Bristol just when we need it most. At this year's festival we present some of the world's funniest silent comedies, brought to life by an unprecedented line-up of special guests. Paul Merton is back once again as the inimitable host of Slapstick's Friday night gala at Colston Hall, presenting Buster Keaton's Our Hospitality accompanied live by the finest silent film ensemble in Europe, The Prima Vista Social Club. This year, Bristol Old Vic is delighted to play host to some of the festival's major highlights and to welcome an array of very special guests including beloved national treasure Eric Sykes and The Goodies in conversation with Phill Jupitus.

The Slapstick festival evolved from our ongoing Bristol Silents programme at Watershed and our close working relationship with Paul Merton. Our shared passion for silent films and especially silent comedy led to the first Slapstick weekend in 2005. The festival was such a success it's been an annual event ever since and it even lead to the commisioning of a BBC TV series Paul Merton's Silent Clowns screened in 2006 and 2007.

I hope you will join us at Slapstick in January and discover the wonderful world of silent comedy.

The blog at quotes a blurb from the festival as saying:

We are expecting unprecedented demand for these tickets and expect them to sell out quickly. A limited amount of priority tickets have been put aside for Bristol Silents Members and those people who purchase festival passes until 17th November and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. All Bristol Silents members and delegates will be able to purchase tickets at discounted rates.
