Nice beaver!
Dir: David Zucker / 1988 / 85 mins / Cert 15

Tickets: £5 advance / £7 doors

Leslie Nielsen’s incompetent cop Lt Frank Drebin attempts to foil a deadly plot to assassinate Queen Elizabeth II. Naked Gun stands alongside fellow Zucker/Abrahams/Zucker effort Airplane! at the pinnacle of the spoof genre. This remains a remarkably funny film.

As ever at the comedy combo, appropriate dress will be rewarded!

Preceded by live stand up from:

Saskia Preston: Finalist in Funny Women Awards and Comedy Knights 2013, Saskia has since been shortlisted for the BBC Radio New Comedy Award. Expect surrealist wordplay, a distinctive voice and hilarious results.

Jake Lambert: A fresh face in more ways than one, Jake’s meteoric rise in just two years of performing has already seen him reach the semi finals of the BBC Radio New Comedy Award. Jake specialises in sharply written one liners delivered with confidence and charm.

Harriet Dyer: “Exploring the thin line between the eccentric and the mental” is how Harriet described her recent Edinburgh show, titled ‘Barking at Aeroplanes’. Vibrant, scatty, absurd and very funny is what we’d say.

Dan Nicholas: A unique, interactive performer prone to flights of surreal fantasy. Dan last passed through the Microplex in 2014 with his Conversation Garden ensemble show and we are delighted to welcome him back to the Cube as a solo performer. Fresh from performing multiple shows at Leicester Comedy Festival, Dan was recently named runner up Breakthrough Act in the Midlands Comedy Awards.

Hannah Horan: With a background steeped in sketch and character comedy, Hannah’s stuff is fresh as a Daisy/Pauline/Alan.

Scott Walker: A warm and friendly tattooed Mancunian, Scott is like a hipster Jason Manford. But in a good way.

Tickets on sale in advance from Bristol Ticket Shop and Here Gallery. We strongly advise booking in advance to avoid disappointment.
