Jonathan Wakeham’s Top Five Comedy Films 2012


The Muppets

A cracking start to the year with the return of our favourite furry friends. I loved the Sunset Boulevard opening, with Kermit holed up in his mansion, and grinned happily all the way through. Amy Adams deserved better though: it’s disappointing that in 2012 we have such a limited female lead character.

The London Comedy Film Festival Line-up


The London Comedy Film Festival will run from 26th -29th January 2012 at BFI Southbank.

Last night the press launch took place and the line-up is pretty special, as was the evening the LoCo team set up.

Giant glasses of Tanqueray gin (and tonic) were abundant, which may have marred our (The Bluth Man Group) performance in the comedy film quiz they had also arranged… We came third!

This totally stumped us in the picture round:


Do you know who it is?

The line-up includes special previews of The Muppets and The Fairy.

Edgar Wright will also be there introducing a double bill of Shaun of the Dead and Life is Sweet.

London looks to be lit up by LoCo in the month of January and I am really looking forward to it.
