Nicko and Joe's Bad Film Club

Once again, comedians Nicko and Joe return to Abertoir to share their utter disrespect for other people’s films, fighting the good fight when other people’s films show their utter disrespect for the poor people watching them!

With their laser pointer of doom, and their heroic efforts to try and find any logic or sense whatsoever in the secret film about to screen, Nicko and Joe will do their best to try and make watching it bearable. Pointing out every continuity error, misplaced sound boom, wardrobe malfunction or fashion malfunction, this live commentary will do nothing to improve the film whatsoever, but will make you realise…it’s not just you wanting it to finish, it’s a whole cinema too!
