Charlie Chaplin has been making audiences laugh for over a hundred years now, and you’ll find out why in Funny Bones, hosted by renowned physical comedian and Chaplin authority Dan Kamin in the first of two performances in the Tybee Post Theater’s exclusive Charlie Chaplin Tribute.
Dan trained Robert Downey Jr. for his Oscar-nominated performance in the movie “Chaplin” and created Johnny Depp’s comedy moves for the film “Benny and Joon.”
In Funny Bones, he’ll screen Chaplin’s 1916 comic masterpiece “The Pawnshop,” and then peel the layers of the film to reveal its surprising secrets. You’ll learn all about Chaplin’s remarkable body language and brilliant visual comedy, and you’ll also see some brilliant sleight-of-hand and visual comedy from Kamin.
This program won’t just change the way you look at Chaplin’s world—it will change the way you look at your own as well.
Sat. March 30, 7:30 pm Tickets $15 adults, $10 children, $25 for both shows.
In the second performance, on Sunday afternoon, you’ll meet the iconic Tramp character who conquered the world with his comic antics.
Charlie Chaplin was the first truly global superstar, drawing crowds in the tens of thousands wherever he traveled. In Red Letter Days, Dan explores that fame, the iconic Tramp character at its core, and what was going on behind the scenes.
This entertaining and informative presentation will be illustrated with rare and fascinating images, music and pristine restored film from the period, including Chaplin’s blockbuster war comedy “Shoulder Arms,” released while World War One was still raging.
Don’t miss this excursion into the public and private worlds of Hollywood’s first superstar.
