Found Footage Festival (Perfect Strangers Comedy)

By | Published on Saturday 19 August 2017

Childhood bromancers Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher have been trawling through thrift stores across America to find the silliest retro footage they can. Featuring an eclectic mix of weird pet videos, local news bloopers, “buttcamp” and some of the pranksters’ own genius stunts on national TV, this show will have you wondering what on earth really went on in the 80s. The duo’s dry, understated commentary makes a fantastic pairing for their outrageously bizarre and completely over-the-top footage. The slapstick of Just For Laughs meets the weirdest corner of YouTube meets Harry Hill’s sardonic American cousins; this pair and their videos will have you in stitches, shouting at a screen that can’t answer back.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 27 Aug.
