 Subject:  Slapstick 2014 Festival (Bristol, England Jan 24-26, 2014)
03/12/2013 05:10 GMT

The Slapstick 2014 festival schedule has been announced, and we're pleased to see that all three Goodies will be participating again this year.  The full schedule of events for the festival (which will be held January 24-26, 2014 in Bristol, England) on can be found at here are some highlights for Goodies fans.

1. Lost Keaton Goodies

With Tim Brooke-Taylor, Bill Oddie, Graeme Garden & Serge Bromberg
SAT 25 JAN 1630hrs Bristol Old Vic £15.00

Tim, Bill & Graeme were one of UK’s funniest and most successful TV comedy teams of the 70s. Huge admirers of Buster Keaton the boys have been inspired recently by the discovery of 6 minutes of completely lost and unseen footage from a newly discovered version of his comedy well known comedy short The Blacksmith (1922). Appearing alongside the inimitable Serge Bromberg (Lobster Films, Paris) the boys will delight audiences with the UK premiere of unseen Keaton extracts and the world premiere of The Gorilla Man (1950) in this Lobster Films/Slapstick Festival co-production. A unique event for Keaton fans everywhere.

2. Lost Clowns: Max Davidson’s Best Comedy Shorts

With Graeme Garden
SUN 26 JAN 1000hrs Watershed £8.00/£6.50

Max Davidson (1875-1950) was a German actor who specialised in playing the henpecked Jewish family father. At the peak of his career in 1927 he was given his own series of two reeler comedies, when he was signed to the Hal Roach studios for a series of Jewish comedies which belong to the best and funniest shorts the studio ever produced. The character Davidson played was a fish out of water, struggling to adjust to mainstream America, and his comedy grew out of the gulf between his old world manners and the new world that his children were born into. Graeme Garden selects his favourite Davidson silent shorts to reveal Max at his brightest and funniest.

3. Harry Hill’s Top Comedy Moments

SUN 26 JAN 1600hrs Bristol Old Vic £15

We are delighted to welcome award winning comedian Harry Hill to Slapstick Festival as he chooses his top visual comedy films in this annual Slapstick sell-out show. Showing favourite clips and discussing his comic influences, Harry will be in conversation onstage with I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue star and Goodie Graeme Garden. A rare insight into the comic influences of the master of surrealist comedy as he reveals his top comedy moments to delight and entertain. A guaranteed highlight of the festival!

and for those who are also  I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue fans:

4. Safety Last (1923):

Colin Sell “On the Piano”, Introduced by Barry Cryer
SUN 26 JAN 1400hrs Bristol Old Vic £15

Dir: Fred Newmeyer 70mins “Colin Sell.... on the piano” is a familiar phrase for fans of I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue from Colin’s 40yrs as the accompanist on the BBC R4 comedy show. There, he’s usually only ever heard in short bursts. Here, he proves his true talent as musician, playing live to one of the very finest and funniest full length silent features – Harold Lloyd’s Safety Last (featuring the famously gripping clock tower climb that was a marvel of filmmaking ingenuity in its day). With an introduction by Slapstick Festival favourite Barry Cryer. Prepare to laugh yourself silly and for thrills that will keep you on the edge of your seat!
