Classic comedy on Wednesday (US) & Thursday (Europe)

Painting of “The Imaginary Invalid” by Moliere

(THIS EVENT HAS ENDED.) This Thursday our radio station takes a look at  the treasure trove of classic  comedies that are available online.  Writers as diverse as Shakespeare, Moliere, Mark Twain, P.G. Wodehouse, Noel Coward and Ben Hecht will take us on a humorous journey that spans centuries. There will be time travel, spiritism, hypochondria, yes even an occasional case of uranium poisoning, all with a twinkle in the eye, of course. We kick off with the great Baron Munchausen.

The actors appearing this evening will include W.C. Fields, Bob Hope, Laurence Olivier and many, many more.

Be sure to tune in Thursday for an evening of classic comedy. The event starts around 00.01 (a.m.) on Thursday Central European Time. On the west coast of the US, that would be around 18.01 on Wednesday.  On the East coast it would be 15.01.
