All hail VHS! For the first time ever in the country, SUFF are proud to present living legends Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher, the masterminds behind the Found Footage Festival - a one-of-a-kind live happening. Hosts Pickett (The Onion) and Prueher (Late Show with David Letterman) make their Australian debut with an all-new edition of the Found Footage Festival, featuring newly unearthed VHS gems found at thrift stores across America. Highlights include: A collection of satanic panic videos from the 80s, including “The Law Enforcement Guide to Satanic Cults”, outtakes and on-air bloopers from twenty years of North Dakota local news, a star-studded Desert Storm parade sponsored by Taco Bell, highlights from David Letterman's Video Collection, inherited by the Found Footage Festival when Dave retired and never-before-seen footage from the fake strongman prank Pickett and Prueher pulled on local morning news shows earlier this year. Prepare yourself for an evening of live comedy and video insanity you’ll never forget, no matter how hard you try! An Opening Night spectacular for the ages, don’t miss this unique event that will have you rolling in the aisles. Be sure to stay on afterwards for complimentary bevvies and SUFF’s infamous Opening Night party that will kick off the festival with a bang!

5/5. “No mortal man could possibly come up with something this entertaining... It’ll be an experience you’ll be talking about for a long time to come.
“A trashy delight…the total experience has the rubbernecking appeal of a traffic accident, except that no one gets hurt.”
