Alice Howell was a huge comedy star in the late teens and early 1920s and one of the few women permitted to be funny in her own right in the male-dominated world of silent screen comedy.

Join standup comedian and writer Lucy Porter as she introduces a selection of Howell’s funniest, newly restored, comedy shorts as she champions this rarely seen, yet prolific, comedy performer.

Curated by Ben Model and Steve Massa with special thanks to the Library of Congress.
