Adult Film Club at GRUB Manchester, Manchester 21 December 2023 Tickets from £6.00 — Book now

It’s tinsel time – our favourite mucky video night out is back with a Christmas special on Thursday, 21st December.

This one-of-a-kind weird-vid event is curated by Chris Cantrill (BBC 2’s Alma’s Not Normal and one-half of awesome double-act The Delightful Sausage, twice nominated for ‘Best Show’ at Edinburgh Fringe), who’s back with his chum, filmmaker Sam O’Leary (Inside No.9, Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared) to showcase more bizarre, hilarious and brilliant short films at Grub, the most reliable laughterhouse around.

The previous events have been some of the most unique and belly-achingly funny comedy nights to hit Manchester in a long time. If you missed out… you’re missing out. So don’t miss out.

Need more context? It’s all about unforgettable short films from around the world wide web, and even some stuff from the information superhighway, all from the globe’s top video-making talent.

We reached out to Chris and Sam for comment and they simply told us to book now to avoid feeling like a big idiot this Christmas. Something to keep in mind.
