Back for a third year, the London Comedy Film Festival 2014 boasts the world premiere of new independent flick Benny and Jolene, featuring young stars Craig Roberts from Submarine and Fresh Meat’s Charlotte Ritchie.

Also billed for screens across the capital is a special 35th anniversary screening of Life of Brian from comedy troupe Monty Python - who recently announced a series of London reunion show dates - and the UK premiere of the award-winning Matterhorn from Dutch director Diederik Ebbinge.

So ditch hopes for a dry and abstemious January and indulge in one of the year’s first festivals.

You won’t even have to fork out too much. The world premiere of Benny and Jolene - a comic tale of a folk duo’s attempts to break it big - at the BFI Southbank this Friday will only set you back £15, and includes a Q&A with the cast after the screening.
