Studio Talk by Mike Jennings
After previous sessions in the Education programme’s season of Classic Comedy (Buster Keaton, The Marx Bros, Jacques Tati), the final session in the series looks at the greatest comedy double act in film history, one which has influenced countless other comedians in Britain and America, both in cinema and television.
Not only did they become world famous, but they were regarded with enormous affection in every country in which their films were distributed, including many countries whose first language was not English. This two-hour session will look at their individual careers, lives and contributions, with lots of illustrative clips, and will be led by Mike Jennings, Lead Trustee for Education. The Comedy Classics series will be starting again next year, as laughter, and the appreciation of those who so brilliantly provide it, is a must in all our lives!
