Graeme will reveal a selection of his best comedies shorts from the 1910s and 1920s featuring performers from the Keystone stable including Charlie Chaplin, Mabel Normand, Roscoe Arbuckle and perhaps even a glimpse of Sennett�s �Bathing Beauties� and the renowned, often imitated Keystone Cops.

At Last the 1948 Show Revisted Cert:PG
with Tim Brooke-Taylor and Aimi MacDonald

Sat 23rd Jan | Watershed | 9:15AM
Tickets: �6.00/�8.00 (plus booking fee)

�At Last the 1948 Show� triggered a revolution that was destined to change the face of TV comedy forever. Bursting onto the nation�s small screens in an explosion of unrelated and often surreal sketches, its main perpetrators were Tim Brooke-Taylor, John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Marty Feldman and Aimi MacDonald. What �At Last the 1948 Show� began the Monty Python and The Goodies would finish in their own inimitable way. Four �lost� episodes of At last the 1948 Show have recently been recovered from the David Frost Collection. Here we offer a rare opportunity to watch excerpts from the show�s best bits and from some of the newly discovered editions followed by a Q&A as Tim and Aimi discuss this seminal comedy show on stage with presenter Chris Serle.

Spike Milligan said: �From the moment I saw Laurel and Hardy on the screen I knew they were my friends� and friendship is at the heart of their 1937 spoof Western comedy, which contains their most famous song and one of the most charming dance sequences in cinema history. Laurel &Hardy admirer and Goodie Bill Oddie introduces.
