'The Alternative Comedy Experience' was filmed in front of a real comedy club audience and faithfully captures the unique atmosphere of a live comedy gig. You'll see no reaction shot cutaways to laughing celebrities. Instead, a crowd comprised of four-eyed pseudo-intellectuals and unforgiving drunks is close enough for the viewer at home to experience the sense of danger, and thrilling triumph that pervades real stand-up shows. 'The Alternative Comedy Experience' celebrates the past, the present and the future of the UK comedy circuit and the craft of stand up comedy at its most original. Renew your faith in this vital live artform.
