Still: Sweet

LSFF Launch Night: Funny Shit Live featuring Jarred Christmas

4 Jan 2008

To kick off this year's London Short Film Festival we acknowledge the debt of comedy to short film by screening shorts starring Johnny Vegas, Mackenzie Crook, The Mighty Boosh, Martin Freeman and Kris Marshall, with live comedy and a party in the bar.

Live: Jarred Christmas (The Geek Show / That Film Show / Flight of the Conchords)

Jarred Christmas has a unique style that deftly mixes gags with storytelling. He has a dynamic onstage persona and the ability to improvise and roll with anything that's thrown his way, making his comedy sizzle with originality.

Short Films

The Mighty Boosh star in James Pilkington's surreal romantic comedy Sweet, and Tim Plester & Ben Gregor will present their comedic trilogy looking back at the triple whammy of 70's and 80's pop culture referencing: Big Daddy the wrestler, Adam & the Ants and Blake's 7, all starring the comedy geniuses of Johnny Vegas, Mackenzie Crook, Martin Freeman and Kris Marshall.

In the bar: Bolt Action Five (DJ set)

As a band BA5 describe themselves as a productive and mutually beneficial friendship between Trent Reznor, Prince, Big Black and Les Savy Fav, so expect similar sounds as they man the decks tonight.
