Event Information

Ever since her debut on screen turn in cult Channel 4 comedy Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace, Coventry born actress Alice Lowe has excelled in every role she’s been given, whether small screen or big. Armed with a twisted sense of humour that has seen her play a Midlands serial killer (Sightseers), an inebriated Rosalind Franklin (Drunk History) and a mum whose unborn baby tells her to kill (Prevenge), Alice is a shining star of the comedy world.

We’re very pleased to welcome Alice to MAC for a screening of Sightseers as part of the BFI Comedy Genius season, after which she will chat about her work, including making Prevenge whilst almost eight months pregnant, working with Jessica Hynes on Jessica’s upcoming directorial debut and that time she played a monkey on The Mighty Boosh.

Comedy Genius is a celebration of comedy on screen, led by BFI, the Independent Cinema Office and BFI Film Audience network, supported by funds from the National Lottery.
