Laughs aplenty at the first London Comedy Film Festival

The muppets at London Comedy Film FestivalThe first ever London Comedy Film Festival kicks off today (January 27) at BFI Southbank, attempting to brighten up what is officially the most depressing week of the year. Highlights include a ‘green carpet’ screening of ‘The Muppets’ this evening, the UK premiere of the French comedy ‘The Fairy’ (also today) and special screenings of ‘Life Is Sweet’ and ‘Shaun of The Dead’ introduced by Edgar Wright (Saturday). Sunday sees a reading of lost Galton and Simpson script ‘The Day Off’ with a cast including Kevin Eldon and Morwenna Banks. And if you fancy yourself as a comedy filmmaker, check out the classes and workshops in the ‘Kickstart Your Comedy Career’ strand. Plus, if you are on the south bank this evening between 9.30-10.30pm, make sure you look up at the London Eye as it will be transformed in to a big smiley face especially for the occasion. Anna Smith
