Bedford Comedy and Short Film Festival

 

 

BCEX and Love Bedford presents... Bedford Comedy and Short Film Festival 28th - 30th October 2011

 

Bedford Corn Exchange will be holding its first three day Comedy and Short Film Festival featuring the best in live comedy and the newest in short comedic films.

 

Currently confirmed live shows from TV and Radio regulars include Andy Parsons, Jeremy Hardy, Barry Cryer & Ronnie Golden, Tony Hawks, Andi Osho, Imran Yusuf, Tom Stade, Pete Firman, Dan Antopolski, Andrew Lawrence, Tom Binns as Ivan Brackenbury & Ian D. Montfort, and Big Howard + Little Howard and more to be confirmed in the coming weeks.

 

Bedford Corn Exchange has become a fixture on the UK comedy circuit, presenting regular comedy shows throughout the year, but this will be the first designated Comedy Festival for the town. The programme aims to provide a range of comedy styles and will entertain the widest variety of tastes.  Shows will take place in the Bedford Civic Theatre and The Bedford Corn Exchange, so there’s no trudging between gigs. Also, prices are to be kept at very reasonable rates, giving comedy lovers the chance to see multiple shows over the weekend for less than the price of one ticket for a West End show.

 

Running concurrently will be a Festival of Comedy Short Films from around the world. Entry is open to all filmmakers for comedic films under 25 minutes in length, and the screenings conclude with a Jury Prize and Audience Prize for Best Film in Festival. Enquiries about submissions to the film festival should be made to bedfordcomedyshorts@yahoo.co.uk

For more information please call 01234 269519. More detailed information about live shows and the film festival can be found at the following website:
