George Kane’s End-of-the-world clown comedy Apocalypse Clown will be released in cinemas across the UK through Vertigo Releasing on 1st September.
This Irish horror, Apocalypse Clown, tells the tale of a troupe of failed clowns and an ambitious reporter who embark on a chaotic adventure of self-discovery after a mysterious solar event plunges the world into anarchy.
“…ruthlessly devoted to making audiences laugh.”
“As a fan,” says Director George Kane, “I miss the days of the out-there, joke-packed big-screen comedy and Apocalypse Clown is ruthlessly devoted to making audiences laugh. It’s blessed with a wonderful cast who fully committed to bringing these loveably twisted weirdos to life, and it demands to be seen with a crowd. It’s unhinged, unpredictable, and if it’s not the greatest dystopian Irish clown comedy ever made, it’s definitely Top 5…”
Directed by BAFTA-nominated George Kane (Crashing, Disney’s Wedding Season), Apocalypse Clown was written by Shane O’Brien, James Walmsley, and Demian Fox from the multi-award-winning Irish comedy outfit Dead Cat Bounce.
The film features hilarious performances from David Earl (Brian & Charles, After Life), Natalie Palamides (Nate — A One Man Show), Amy De Bhrún (The Bachelor Weekend), Fionn Foley (Dublin Oldschool), Tadhg Murphy (Brassic) and Ivan Kaye (Gunpowder Milkshake).
