Charlie & Stan at the Minack
In 1910, the then unknown Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel set sail on board a tramp steamer from Liverpool to New York as part of Fred Karno’s famous music hall troupe. On the voyage, they shared a cabin, they shared comedy routines, they shared laughter, but, by the end of the journey, they hated each other... yet they would both go on to become two of the biggest stars of the age.
Inspired by real life events, Told by an Idiot’s acclaimed production of 'Charlie & Stan' is the remarkable story of the greatest comedy double act that nearly was. With an original piano score played live at every performance, 'Charlie & Stan' is a hilarious and deeply moving homage to two men who changed the world of comedy forever.
