A backstage peek at the movies, in the inimitable company of silent cinema's greatest comedy stars.

Charlie Chaplin plays an overworked stagehand who gets a shot at comeuppance when he and his nemesis are enlisted as extras in a pie fight. Followed by Buster Keaton as a cinema projectionist who falls asleep and dreams he is the star of a movie about a 'crime-crushing' detective. This is Keaton at his very best, featuring a nonstop string of stage gags, illusions, impressive stunts, and a dazzlingly brilliant film-within-a-film.

This popular Jeely Jar show starts with a fun competition for all the audience.
