Jaaaaam and Moooooore
Fans of smart, surreal comedy and Chris Morris should not miss this one-off screening.
In this special programme, treated, remixed episodes of Chris Morris’ dark, surreal, horror-comedy series blend into and out of other uncanny experimental pieces in the manner of Morris’ original radio show Blue Jam. ‘When dancing, lost in techno trance, arms flailing, gawky Bez; then find you snagged on frowns, and slowly dawns. You’re jazzing to the bleep tone of a life support machine, that marks the steady fading of your day-old baby daughter. And when midnight sirens lead to blue-flash road-mash, stretchers, covered heads, and slippy red macadam, and find you creeping ’neath the blankets, to snuggle close a mangle bird, hoping soon you too will be freezer drawered. Then welcome... mmm... ooh, chemotherapy wig, welcome. In Jam. Jaaaaam.’
