What's happening in BFI Comedy Genius?

A season of side-splitting film comes to Storyhouse this autumn, as we screen some of the finest comedies ever made.

From the rapid-fire dialogue of His Girl Friday to the jaw-droppingly irreverent Monty Python & The Holy Grail; the screwball chaos of Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown to the office comedy Nine to Five – whether you’re revisiting an old favourite or seeing one for the first time, enjoy the big laughs on the big screen at Storyhouse.

Monty Python And The Holy Grail (12A)
Sun 3pm

1 hr 32 | 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.

Women On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown (12)

1 hr 49 | Almodovar’s unique storytelling in the Oscar-nominated comedy tells the story of Pepa who resolves to kill herself with a batch of sleeping-pill-laced gazpacho after her lover leaves her. Fortunately, she is interrupted by a deliciously chaotic series of events – and many characters who are all possibly on the verge of a full emotional collapse.

Nine To Five (15)

1 hr 49 | Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton star as three women who, sick of their egotistical, sexist manager, seek to change their all-female workplace for good.
