KINO COMEDY (Cert 15) @ Central Library Performance Space
Thursday 29th May, 6.00pm Central Library
Sometimes it’s the little things that make us laugh! In this diverse selection of comedy shorts we are treated to a hilariously true to life train journey with a typical family in ‘Bradford Halifax London’. On the other side of the world a taxi driver aspires to touch lives through his songs in the sweetly humorous ‘Melvis’. Meanwhile it is a day like any other for Tony Bianchi, in Francesco Zuchi’s award winning magical comedy ‘Piove (It’s Raining)’.
