Bristol Jam Packed Bonanza Ft. Reggie Watts, Jackal Films, Malcolm Hardee's Tunnel & More

Fri 5 November 2010 // 20:00

(Fri 5th / 8 pm kick off / £10)

A full evening of live fun and films from acts of global stature as part of Bristol Old Vic's Improvisation festival.

The Cube is proud to play host to international sensation, the amazing Reggie Watts. Reggie’s improvised sets are created on-the-spot using only his voice and a looping machine. No two songs or performances are ever the same.

"Reggie Watts is a most unusual talent: a huge vocal range, a natural
musicality, and a side-splitting wit. Is he a comedian? A singer? A performance artist? I've seen him a few times since then and I still can't decide. Whatever, he ain't like nobody else.” – Brian Eno

Plus, two improvised short films presented by Jacqueline Wright & T.V.'s Alice Lowe (Garth Marenghi's Darkplace / Mighty Boosh)

Jackal is the demon child of Jacqueline Wright and Alice Lowe and has been bringing you bloodied offerings every month in 2010. British director Wright and Perrier Award-winning writer/performer Lowe use improvisation in almost all of their films, which can be watched online at http://www.jackalfilms.co.uk. Both of their films screening tonight are entirely improvised: Roots, a story about love, music and vegetable-worship; and Junglophilia, set at the first ever WOMAD music festival and commissioned by Peter Gabriel himself.

Kicked off with Director Jody Vandenburg presenting 'The Tunnel', a half hour film about Malcolm Hardee's seminal Tunnel Club, featuring Simon Munnery, Harry Enfield and Kevin McCarthy, with appearances from Rich Hall, Mark Lamarr, Phil Kay, Vic Reeves etc.

Prepare for further surprise improvised live shenanigans too . . .
