(from Slapstick Festival)
‘At Last the 1948 Show’ triggered a revolution destined to change the face of TV comedy forever. John Cleese, Tim Brooke-Taylor, Aimi MacDonald, Marty Feldman and Graham Chapman burst onto the nation’s small screens in an explosion of unrelated and often surreal sketches. It paved the way for both Month Python and The Goodies. With a new – as complete as it’s likely to ever be – three DVD/BluRay set released recently by BFI we thought a re-evaluation and a glimpse at the newly discovered footage with series star and Slapstick patron Tim Brooke-Taylor was long overdue. Tim will be in conversation with fan of the series Robin Ince. Followed by an audience Q&A and post-event DVD signing with Tim.
