Slapstick is delighted to welcome writer, director comedian and actor Stephen Merchant to host our annual celebration of the finest comedy double-act of all time: Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy.

Stephen brings the timeless Stan and Ollie back, where they belong, on the big screen. Complete with screenings of their finest comedy shorts and onscreen moments chosen by Stephen PLUS an exclusive Q&A with the audience.
