Neil Brand hosts an Evening with Laurel & Hardy

Presented by Alan Field Associates

Join Neil Brand, composer, writer, broadcaster, musician, with his all-new show about the immortal comedy duo.

Neil Brand is acclaimed as the leading expert on silent film and silent comedy, with his original composed music. He has been invited to appear and perform around the world in over 30 countries. He appears at major film festivals and theatres with his wonderful and unique insight into the birth of the early film industry and the geniuses involved.

From their earliest days on opposite sides of the Atlantic in Music Hall and on the stage, to their individual comedy films before they were paired up by Hal Roach, and to their silent masterpieces before the arrival of sound, Neil will tell the touching story of the world’s greatest comedy team, who could not have been two more different men!

Fully illustrated with stills, clips (both silent and sound) and Neil’s superlative piano accompaniment and culminating in two of the boys’ best silent short films, Big Business and Liberty, this is a show that promises gales of laughter throughout, as well as getting under the skin of two warm, funny men who continue to make the world laugh.
