The Alternative Comedy Experience


Season One

Released on DVD Monday 18 November

Available to pre-order now

COMEDY CENTRAL UK announces the DVD release of its cult-hit TV series THE ALTERNATIVE COMEDY EXPERIENCE on Monday 18 November.

This critically acclaimed series, which proved a ratings success when it first aired on Comedy Central earlier in the year, with a second season to follow in 2014, is curated by STEWART LEE and features a cast of highly individual award-winning and break-through comedians, including TONY LAW, SIMON MUNNERY, ISY SUTTIE, DAVID O’DOHERTY, PAUL FOOT, ANDY ZALTZMAN, HENNING WEHN, JOSIE LONG, ELEANOR TIERNAN, DAVID KAY and BRIDGET CHRISTIE.

THE ALTERNATIVE COMEDY EXPERIENCE was filmed in front of a real comedy club audience at THE STAND COMEDY CLUB in EDINBURGH, faithfully capturing the unique atmosphere of one of the UK’s favourite and longest established live comedy clubs. It showcases a mix of modern day comedians offering material possibly too clever, thoughtful, radical, satirical, strange, or downright stupid to make it onto more mainstream stand-up outlets. Capturing its unique cast, fast pace and distinctive visual style THE ALTERNATIVE COMEDY EXPERIENCE is one of the most unpredictable and original live stand up DVDs on sale.

The TWO DISC DVD SET includes all 12 episodes from Season One, 60 minutes of ‘uncut’ full-length performances and interviews, plus a 36-page souvenir brochure written by Stewart Lee to celebrate the talent involved, and the making of this innovative and original Comedy Central UK commission.

THE ALTERNATIVE COMEDY EXPERIENCE DVD is available for pre-order now from Amazon and from Monday 18 November will be available in the High Street at HMV/Fopp stores nationwide.
