This March The Found Footage Festival, the acclaimed touring showcase of odd and hilarious found videos, is coming to the UK with a brand-new show, Volume 9, 4th – 12th March. Hosts Nick Prueher and Joe Pickett, whose credits include The Onion and The Colbert Report, will celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Found Footage Festival in a nine date tour across England. Three shows at the Soho Theatre: 5th, 6th and 7th March.
The Found Footage Festival is a one-of-a-kind celebration of the videos that time forgot, dredged up in dusty thrift stores and estate sales throughout North America. Childhood friends Pickett and Prueher take audiences on a guided tour of their latest and greatest VHS finds, providing live commentary and where-are-they-now updates on the people in these videotaped obscurities.
Highlights of the new show include:
Recently unearthed footage from the 1987 Miss Junior America Wisconsin pageant
An exercise video called “Skiercise!”
A local news story about Pudgie Wudgie the Wonder Cat
A 1982 beauty pageant for men from the southwest of England
Cringe-worthy courtroom footage of Pickett and Prueher in their legal depositions following a federal lawsuit over their news pranks as strongman duo, Chop & Steele
