Slapstick festival are delighted to welcome comedian and writer Lee Mack as he hosts this special one-off event celebrating two of his top comedy heroes; Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy.
Best known for his stand up comedy, writing and starring in the long running sitcom ‘Not Going Out’ and as a team captain in ‘Would I Lie to You?’ Lee hosts this unique evening of hilarious extracts, comedy and film.
Complete with full comedy shorts and live music, Lee brings the timeless Stan & Ollie back to the big screen where they belong, in front of a live audience.
Including a complete screening of the newly restored, long, thought-to-be-lost Laurel and Hardy silent comedy, Battle of the Century (1927) featuring the world premiere of a new semi-improvised score from composter Guenter A. Buchwald performed live by the European Silent Screen Virtuosi.
