Box Office Hits & Misfits: Bobcat Goldthwait with Helliar and Hammo

Join comedians Peter Helliar and Justin Hamilton for a Helliar and Hammo Dig Flicks in-conversation with prolific and prodigious comic talent Bobcat Goldthwait, as he talks about his 30-year career in film and television – and the dark streak of his own big-screen features, from directorial debut Shakes the Clown (famously dubbed the “Citizen Kane of alcoholic clown movies” by Martin Scorsese!) to World’s Greatest Dad (MIFF 10) and his new film, God Bless America, which ruthlessly takes apart the inanity of American pop culture.

Sunday 19 August, 4pm–5.30pm
Festival Lounge, Forum Theatre
$15 full* / $12 concession* / $11 MIFF members*
