We can finally make the announcement “everyone” has been waiting for.
The much hinted at, 20 year anniversary event is now scheduled in the BFI calendar.
There will be two shows during the evening of December 15th and tickets will go on sale to members next Tuesday, 1st November, with non-members scooping up the remains the following Tuesday.
Adam Buxton and Joe Cornish started making short comedy films as school friends in the 80s. Having submitted them to Channel 4’s innovative YouTube forerunner Takeover TV in 1995, they were invited to host the programme. This led to the award-winning Adam and Joe Show, which regularly attracted audiences of nearly 2 million on Channel 4 from 1996 to 2001. With its mix of pop culture parodies and observations on modern living, the show launched their careers – which have spanned TV, radio, cinema and hosting the world’s best music video show, BUG. Twenty years on from their first TV appearance, the duo take to the BFI stage for some podcast-style conversation with a not-at-all self-indulgent look at a few clips from their early TV forays. Come and see how time has cruelly punished these once fresh-faced cheeky fellows in this rare live reunion. Book early to avoid disappointment.
