Posted by lisa

Slapstick 2012, the festival run by Bristol Silents and supported by the three Goodies, has announced part of their schedule for January 26-29, 2012.  According to the information at http://www.slapstick.org.uk/events.htm#  , the Goodies will be participating in the following events.  Please note that additional events are to be announced in the near future and that tickets for many events will go on sale later in the week.


Thursday, 26 Jan:

* BUSTER KEATON : Brownlow and Garden
    THURS 26 JAN 1740hrs £7/£5.20, Venue: Watershed

The first of two exceptional events dedicated to "The Great Stone Face", hosted by Oscar-winner Kevin Brownlow, here in conversation with fellow-enthusiast Graeme Garden (of The Goodies and  Sorry I Haven't a Clue).  Rare film illustrations recall Brownlow's meetings with Keaton in the 1960s, his restoration of The General, and collaboration with David Gill on the definitive Keaton documentary, A Hard Act to Follow.

Saturday, 28 Jan:

* GRAEME GARDEN ON CHARLEY CHASE
    SAT 28 JAN 1100hrs Venue: Arnolfini £7/£5.50

To say Charley Chase is one of the comic greats of all time is no exaggeration: this brilliantly inventive and prolific comedian contributed to over 300 films as writer, director, or actor (sometimes as all three) before his untimely death at the age of 46. Chase worked with almost every major name in early film comedy including Chaplin, Arbuckle, Lloyd, Laurel & Hardy, and the Three Stooges.  Chase made many comedy shorts in the twenties as a hugely popular comic/performer in his own right. Chase admirer, Goodie and Iím Sorry I Havenít a Clue panellist, Graeme Garden selects his favourite shorts from this period to reveal Chase at his finest and funniest. 
With live piano accompaniment by John Sweeney.

* Bill Oddie's Top Comedy Momentsin conversation with Chris Serle
    SAT 28 JAN 1600hrs Venue: Watershed £7.60/£5.20

Whose first records were produced by George Martin, and who had two singles banned by the BBC? Who earned rave reviews on Broadway for his dancing?  Who rode on the back seat of the Goodies' tandem?  Who has been called 'Britain's best-known birdwatcher?' The answer to all of the above is...... Bill Oddie.

A national treasure, Bill Oddie was one third of UK's top comedy hit of the 70s - The Goodies and the UK's favourite wildlife presenter regularly fronting Springwatch and Autumnwatch.

Witty, Candid and unconventional Bill invites you to join him as he recounts his working relationships with some of the greatest comic talents of his generation, including John Cleese, Jonathan Miller and fellow Goodies whilst delighting us with his top onscreen comedy moments from the last century.  You can expect some Laurel & Hardy but otherwise Bill is not giving anything away in advance, and we donít blame him!  A fascinating insight into the comic influences of this unique comic performer.
