Clowning with the Classics

Clowning with the Classics

Slapstick 2020

From Frankie Howerd donning a toga and issuing forth with the prologue in Up Pompeii to the Monty Python team deploying Greek philosophers in an Olympiastadion International game of football, some of our best-loved comedians have embraced and generally mucked about with aspects and perceptions of the Classics.

Join learned writer and comedian Robin Ince, seniorLecturer in Art & Visual Culture at Bristol University Dr Shelley Hales, and Britain's foremost comedy historian Robert Ross in an archive-plundering discussion on this fascinating thread of humour.

Please note: This event replaces the previously billed Natalie Haynes Slapstick 'Classics' which has been cancelled due to unforeseen work commitments.
