The BFI's MAMMOTH 'Comedy Genius' strand heads out on the road, with support from our pals at the Independent Cinema Office, and we'll be booking in a few titles from the tour - all of which can be found here!



MONTY PYTHON & THE HOLY GRAIL - BFI Comedy Genius Tour

The first feature film of the legendary Monty Python group takes us on a medieval quest in England, circa 932 A.D. Wise-cracking, sublimely irreverent and jaw-droppingly hysterical, this comedy will bring laughter (and coconuts!) to our lives when we most need a dose of anarchic Python daring.


Monty Python and the Holy Grail follows King Arthur (Graham Chapman) who is accompanied by his trusty servant Patsy (Terry Gilliam) to seek knights to join his round table at Camelot. The quest isn’t, however, as easy as it might sound: constitutional-obsessed peasants, a Three-Headed Knight and singing dancers of Camelot are only a few of the characters that our merry group of knights will come across on their journey. And did we mention the coconuts already?


Endlessly quotable and quintessentially British, the film also later served as inspiration for the hit musical Spamalot.


As part of the BFI Comedy Genius Tour


We're pleased to announce that 'Monty Python The Python Knights Cosplay' will be joining us for the Sunday afternoon performance. They will be at the cinema for an hour or so before the film starts to bring a little extra joy to the event and pose for photos.

COMING TO AMERICA - BFI Comedy Genius Tour

A career-changing role for comedic motormouth and action star Eddie Murphy (48 Hours, Beverly Hills Cop), Coming to America was the first romantic comedy for the undisputed box office king of the 1980s. Popular to this day for its memorable characters and meme-friendly dialogue and costumes, this cult comedy favourite from director John Landis (The Blues Brothers, Animal House) also includes great performances by Arsenio Hall and James Earl Jones, as well as early appearances by Samuel L. Jackson and Cuba Gooding Jr.


It’s the story of a 21-year-old prince, Akeem (Murphy) from the fictional African country of Zamunda. Rejecting a life of pampered luxury and an arranged marriage in his home country, he decides to travel to America with his best friend Semmi (Hall) to live the American dream and find true love instead – comically assuming that New York’s Queens is the only place fit for a king. But whilst the Big Apple isn’t quite what he or Semmi expected, a job at the local fast food place brings Akeem closer to Lisa (Shari Headley), the beautiful girl he has a crush on.


Besides their main roles in this comedic fairy tale, Murphy and Hall are also transformed by make-up wizard Rick Baker (Michael Jackson’s Thriller) to play four smaller parts; a multi-character trademark that would continue throughout Murphy’s popular career in movies such as The Nutty Professor, Bowfinger and Norbit.
