Slapstick Festival is launching a brand new event in partnership with The Room Above Theatre at the White Bear and BFI: Stranger Films.

Discover the crazy world of early cinema with stand-up comedian, animator and video games writer Alasdair Beckett-King – named by Rolling Stone magazine as an unmissable act at the 2022 Edinburgh Fringe, a favourite on Mock the Week and a YouTuber with more than 250K followers.

Films and clips line-up from the eccentric early pioneers of film comedy, including; Charley Bowers, George Melies and Ladislaw Starewicz.

This night aims to showcase the absurdly alternative comedy that paved the way for your favourite slapstick movies and physical comedians today.

You never know what to expect in these hilarious archival films, but we can tease with the fabulous Dancing Pig and delightfully funny scenes from Laurel and Hardy as they fight a crab 40 floors up on a scaffold.

Come early or stay on to enjoy some further strangeness downstairs in the White Bear Pub.
