To celebrate the 80th birthday of this Marx Brothers classic, we are teaming up with the London Comedy Film Festival for an exclusive screening. Duck Soup is considered a comic masterpiece, and its plot is still alarmingly relevant, skewering fascism, nonsensical government bureaucracy, pompous diplomats and the absurdity of reckless war. All this is served up with dollops of vaudeville-style zaniness, hilarious one-liners and wordplay, and features some of the most lauded physical comedy scenes in film. Whether you are a Marx Brothers fan or have never seen Groucho in action, this will be a great night to celebrate one of cinema’s most exuberant classics. Plus Q&A! After the film we are delighted to welcome Simon Louvish – author of celebrated Marx Brothers’ biography Monkey Business – in conversation with Jonathan Wakeham, co-founder of the London Comedy Film Festival.
