Just got home.  Wonderful to see everyone.  Terrific event and really brilliant to see the guys having fun and on form.  Great clips (great quality too!) ... and some very welcome contextualisation from Chris S.  Many thanks to Chris Daniels and the Slapstick team for such a lovely afternoon.

All the best

Andrew

There are lots of great events scheduled for Slapstick 2013 (to be held in Bristol, England in late January); the full schedule can be found on their website http://www.slapstick.org.uk/ .  Following are details about several events of particular interest to Goodies/ISIHAC fans.  NOTE THAT THE ISIHAC event (#3 below) is almost sold out!

From 1970 to 1982, British television audiences roared regularly with delighted laughter at the zany and visually-inventive comedy shows and specials created by the madcap trio known as The Goodies. Slapstick is reuniting all three Goodies for a look-back at rarely-seen gems from their multiple award- winning output. Chris Serle is in the chair giving you a chance to put questions.

Bill Oddie, national treasure, Goodie and wildlife guru returns to Bristolís Slapstick festival to introduce audiences old and young to another of his passions: Laurel & Hardy. Bill chooses his favourite talkies in this early morning programme set to get you buzzing with nostalgia and delight. What better way to start your Sunday? Approx running time 70mins.

Co-presented with Bristolís Festival of Ideas.


4. Slapstick Festival presents Silent Comedy Gala hosted by Dara O Briain
      Featuring Harold Lloyd in his classic comedy KID BROTHER (1927)

Slapstick Sunday - Bristol Old Vic
The programme for Slapstick 2013 is coming together beautifully now and Iím delighted to tell you that it will be unveiled in full on our website on Monday 26 November.

But you donít need to wait until then to start buying tickets!

Todayís news is that booking has just opened for four unique events taking place in the Bristol Old Vicís gloriously-restored theatre on Sunday 27 January Ė all detailed below, along with info on a special offer for everyone who wants to catch two or more of the events (or solve their Christmas gift-buying challenge in style).

In addition, seats for our ever-popular opening gala at Colston Hall on Friday 25 January are already on sale but be warned - they are being snapped up very quickly.

This isnít surprising as the truly brilliant Dara OíBriain will be our host and its other attractions include live music, a UK premiere and a celebration of the genius of Harold Lloyd featuring a screening of Kid Brother (1927). To make sure you donít miss out, please visit Colston Hall's website here.

As well the gala Colston Hall are also hosting a new addition to the festival, Instant Wit. This will serve as an amuse bouche to the gala as it's also on Friday evening at 6pm. Details for this (and tickets) can be found here.

We really hope that youíll be tempted and will want to share the news by forwarding this message, liking / sharing our Slapstick Festival posts on Facebook and / or following @SlapstickFest on Twitter.
