John Cleese, Rory Bremner & friends hosted by Tim Vine

Join us for the comedy event of a life-time in Bristol as legendary artists from the world of comedy and music come together to help raise funds for a cause close to their hearts’ Bristol’s Slapstick Festival.

Comedy icon, writer, actor and python John Cleese leads this fine array of outstanding performers for an evening of live comedy and music.

John is joined by an array of top comedy talent including; Satirist and impressionist Rory Bremner,  7th Python, Rutle and Bonzo Neil Innes and king-of-the-one-liners and ‘Sorry I Haven’t A Clue’ star Barry Cryer who will team up with the inimitable Ronnie Golden to perform and delight audiences with music and, we hope, a selection of new parrot jokes.

With gagmeister Tim Vine on hosting duties this is a ‘once in a lifetime’ event, too good to miss.
