The London Palladium transforms into a time machine of comedy where you'll encounter some of the most famous, silver screen comedic legends of all time as they perform hilarious comic routines on-screen alongside a special live orchestra.
Australian comedian and actor Barry Humphries hosts an unforgettable night, presenting a trio of such comic giants as Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, and Laurel & Hardy. Multi-award-winning performer Barry Humphries is an aficionado of silent comedy and a frequent star of the West End known for his absurdist humour and dadaist style. Silent Comedy Spectacular offers the one-off chance to see one the most significant living comedians of our generation!
Prepare to be spellbound by the late 'Great Stone Face' Buster Keaton's most popular and death-defying stunt – the house fall – in the fabulous comedic masterpiece, Steamboat Bill Jr, from 1927. The film will be presented on an enormous HD screen and is accompanied by The Bristol Ensemble, who will perform a new score by Carl Davis for its long-awaited London premiere.
Additionally, London audiences can look forward to short comedic triumphs from Charlie Chaplin and Laurel & Hardy, all of which will be accompanied by fantastic live music.
The night will also entail Barry's special guests, among which include showbiz extraordinaire Bernie Clifton, along with UK national treasure Barry Cryer and his musical comedy partner in crime Ronnie Golden.
