Live from New York – Halloween in February Spooktacular 12A
Thursday 15th Feb.
11.00 (£8.50/ £5.00 concs)
Halloween is past, but Ben Model and Steve Massa bring it back with a live performance of three surreal and scary shorts.
First on the bill is A Fraternity Mixup (1926) where Alice Ardell and Gale Henry spend the night in a spooky girl’s school where they are visited by an escaped gorilla.
In Local Showers (1916) poor Musty Suffer has a toothache and gets an appointment with the dentist from hell (saying “dentist” is scary enough for most people).
Finally, The Haunted House (1921) sees Buster Keaton investigating the strange going-ons in the titular abode. This creepy trio is curated and hosted by Ben Model, accompanying live on piano, and Steve Massa.
Ben Model and Steve Massa have been entertaining silent comedy fans online since March 2020 with their Sunday night Silent Comedy Watch Parties. The live-streamed events, showcasing rare and better-known silent comedy, have been creating a buzz and keeping people laughing across the globe at a time when it’s been most needed.
You can book tickets to watch the event at Bristol’s Watershed (see button below) or login to this website, using the form below, and watch a ‘live stream’.
