SILENT HEROES

Show is starting at...12 October 2014

Crown Hotel

Double takes, pratfalls and facial gagging. Mention silent comedy and immediately these visual qualities come to mind. And that’s understandable: most physical comedians are divorced from language and carry their best gag with them at all times, their body.

Your guide through this compendium of celluloid slapstick will be André Vincent, a stand-up comedian also trained in clowning, a man who knows literally how to take a fall. Accompanying him on the journey will be the finest silent film composer of his generation, Neil Brand.
