Comedians Cinema Club was LA Weekly’s Best of LA Culture in 2019, nominated as Best Music & Variety Show 2016 by Chortle UK and was Time Out Critics Choice multiple times.
“The CCC’s movies are chaotic, alcohol-fuelled and very funny indeed” – TIME OUT
Being a fan of movies, and having main roles in feature length movies such as Anna, Valerian & The City Of A Thousand Planets, Stoner Express, Moonwalkers etc, it only seemed natural for Eric Lampaert “uniquely talented stand up and expert improviser” to combine his love of films and comedy into one, bringing you Comedians Cinema Club. But he was only able to do it with the UK pals; co-creator & walking IMDB, Matthew Highton, who takes care of the London branch, as well as MC extraordinaire Laura Lexx at the helm of the Brighton branch. And now, the Los Angeles scene with the brilliant Bruce Gray hosting the most for the USA.
“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
Comedians Cinema Club brings together comedians and forces them to improvise their way through movies with a little or a lot of alcohol. Come see us ruin your favourite film “with a lot more booze, fluffed lines & nudity” – TIME OUT
“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
Regular club members are Will Seaward, Joz Norris, Amy Howerska, Simon Feilder, Paul Duncan McGarrity, Katia Kvinge, Eleanor Morton, Jeffrey Baldinger, Bryan Vokey, Kevin Tienken, Caitlin Gill, Barbara Gray, Jackson Banks, Matt McCarthy, various other comics and also surprise celebrity or expert guests.
