Comedy Revue

[no poster image specified]

G

Join us for the Silent Sundays Comedy Revue, featuring one of the heaviest (and two of the skinniest) hitters in comedy: Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, and Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle! Festivities will kick off with a prison-striped Tramp on the lam in The Adventurer (1917), one of Chaplin’s most memorable shorts. We then turn our attention to one of the greatest of comedy duos, Keaton and Arbuckle as they clamor to keep a theatre in business in Back Stage (1919). Finally, One Week (1920), Keaton’s first solo vehicle, rounds out our Revue. In it, Keaton is at his best – the film’s impressive special effects complement his remarkable agility and ability to remain unperturbed by imminent catastrophe. In dialog, each of these three films speak to an unmatched era of silent film comedy!

Featuring live piano accompaniment by Jordan Klapman.
