NEW SHORTS: Funny Shit (at Regent Street)

This event has ended.

20:30 Mon 13 Jan 2020

Regent Street Cinema

We’re packing comedies of a darker hue and more Lynchian leaning, inducing both belly laughs and bittersweet chuckles. These films aren’t afraid to confront issues that matter - from the male gaze to coming out - with lighter spoofs found in the unlikeliest of places, from chicken shops to dreary offices. Eyes out for comedy names Jack Whitehall, Lolly Adefope and Amit Shah. Programmed by Philip Ilson. 88’


This programme contains references to sex and violence, and depicts a mass shooting.
