Comedians Cinema Club
“One of the best audience-participation comedy shows at Edinburgh Festival: In Indiana Jones, punters became elephants to ride the cast through India; in Jaws they were cast as the ocean, beach dwellers, underwater corpses and John Williams. In Pulp Fiction, one man who was chosen to chip in as Harvey Keitel took over the show, after it became apparent he knew every line of the film.” – THE GUARDIAN
3 shows, 2 breaks, 1 night; Start with some stand up comedians doing their own act. Break. All the acts get together to improvise their way through an existing film. Another break. Close the night with a live podcast recording discussing the film and its themes. And that’s a wrap!
“What a silly idea, uproariously executed. A small cast of comedians improvise their way through a film they may only have half-remembered, or never seen at all.” – CHORTLE
Being a fan of movies, and having main roles in upcoming feature lengths for the big screen, AmStarDam, Moonwalkers & Les Profs 2 (France) it only seemed natural to Eric Lampaert “uniquely talented stand up and expert improviser” to combine his love of films and comedy into one, bringing you Comedians Cinema Club.
“The CCC’s movies are chaotic, alcohol-fuelled and very funny indeed” – TIME OUT
An improvised show where some of your favourite movies performed by some of your favourite comedians. Appearing in venues around the country (and soon World) You may either see the comedians perform their own stand up in the first half of the evening, and then anarchically recreate the likes of Pulp Fiction, Star Wars, Back To The Future, Twilight, etc. Or we might have time for us to just improvise the movie. Either way, you’ll have a lot of fun.
“Blockbusters uniquely reimagined over an outrageously uplifting, haphazard hour” – NINE MORE THAN ONE
You’ll find producer Eric Lampaert at most shows, along with his two regular assistant producers Matthew Highton & Will Seaward, an incredible recurring cast of Felicity Ward, Milo McCabe, Grainne Maguire, Simon Feilder & Dan Schreiber and many other special celebrity guests.
“The comic timing of some of these was hilarious and often nonsensical. I would definitely go again” – BROADWAY BABY
