Graeme & Bill participating in Slapstick 2017 festival
18/11/2016 21:03 GMT

Posted by lisa

Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie will once again be participating in the annual Slapstick Festival.  Slapstick 2017 will be held January 18th - 22nd in Bristol, England.

The full festival schedule can be found at http://www.slapstick.org.uk/.  Note that in addition to the events with the Goodies there are also events with Barry Cryer, Colin Sell, and a celebration of "The Young Ones" with Alexi Sayle, Nigel Planer & series co-writer Lise Mayer.

Here are the Goodies-related events:

1."Robin and Not Josie's Book Shambles: The Goodies
Watershed | 1.20pm | Tickets: 9.00/6.50

The hugely popular podcast 'Robin and Josie's Book Shambles' comes to Slapstick to interrogate Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie on the books they made as two thirds of the TV comedy trio The Goodies (1970 - 1982). They'll also be talking about the making of The Goodies Disaster Movie and about the books and the authors that have inspired them.

Sadly, Josie Long is showing off in New York, but there will be a special guest co-host announced soon.


2. Accidentally Preserved: Surviving Slapstick on 16mm
Watershed | 9.30am | Tickets: 8.00/6.00

Slapstick comedy shorts were excellent fodder for home movie companies of the 1920s and 1930s. Kodascope and Pathescope rented or sold safety film prints for people to watch in their homes, not realising that decades later they would out-survive the 35mm versions originally in circulation. This programme contains hilarious rare slapstick shorts starring comedy stars whose work has been largely forgotten.

This event has been curated by Ben Model (silent film historian, accompanist and filmmaker) and will be hosted by Goodie Bill Oddie and Infinite Monkey Cage (Radio 4) star Robin Ince.

With live accompaniment from Guenter A. Buchwald.
