Robert Johnson & The Devil Man World Premiere

Joz Norris, Matthew Highton and everyone involved would love you to be the first in the world to see their new film Robert Johnson and the Devil Man. They would also like a lot of other people in the world to see it. Therefore tonight is not just a screening, it’s a whole evening of comedy and film, whose proceeds will go toward sending their work to festivals across the globe.

Not only will they be premiering their new short film Robert Johnson and the Devil Man, they will also be showing their debut 2016 film collaboration Double Act and the wonderful stars, some of the finest comedians in the country, will be doing short sets to make this an unmissable evening of entertainment.

Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
