The UK’s biggest festival of silent screen and classic comedy is back with a programme which is bursting at the seams; Rob Brydon, Barry Cryer, all three members of The Goodies, Harry Hill, Shappi Khorsandi, Paul McGann, Stephen Merchant, and Lucy Porter are among the stars who will be taking part in the 16th edition in Bristol between the 23rd – 26th January 2020.

The festival is divided into an archival programme of silent comedy at Watershed (23-24 Jan), including a strand curated by Lobster Films’ Serge Bromberg.

This is complemented by an eclectic programme of events at both Watershed and The Redgrave Theatre on Saturday 25th,  followed by a classic comedy TAKEOVER at Bristol Old Vic on Sunday 26 Jan.
