Please support Slapstick’s Big Comedy Night In and help save Slapstick 2021!

We are delighted to announce that a stellar line-up of the UK’s best-known comedians and entertainers will take part in an online comedy show on Sunday 27 September (7.30 pm start) as part of efforts to stave off the financial crisis facing Slapstick Festival because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Frankie BoyleJo BrandRob BrydonStephen FryMatt LucasLee MackStephen MerchantLucy PorterRichard HerringHarry Hill and Michael Palin are just some of the stars lined up to appear in Slapstick’s one-off Big Comedy Night In, being hosted live by comedian, broadcaster and Slapstick supporter Robin Ince.

The online show is being put on to replace the live fundraisers which usually provide 80% of the festival’s finances throughout the year and are now impossible due to Covid19.
