BFI Comedy Genius: The Real McCoy Reloaded

Performance times

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

BBC sketch show The Real McCoy is widely (and rightly) regarded as the best comedy series British TV has ever produced that largely centred on the talents of black Britain. The continued popularity of its clips on YouTube has introduced a whole new generation to a first rate cast that included Eddie Nestor, Meera Syal, Junior Simpson and the late great Felix Dexter. There hasn’t been anything quite like it since.

As part of the BFI Comedy Genius season, Upfront Comedy’s John Simmit will be hosting a screening of two episodes of The Real McCoy at the MAC, followed by a panel Q&A with fellow Real McCoy talents, reminiscing about their time on the show and looking at the path it laid for future black talent.
