Released on DVD from Independent Distribution on 3rd October 2011, the directorial debut by actor and comedian Ben Miller (The Armstrong And Miller Show; Johnny English), Huge is a "heartfelt" (The Guardian) comedy-drama that exposes the dark side of stand-up comedy and the lengths people are willing to go to in order to achieve their dreams.
Based on an original play co-written by Miller, Jez Butterworth (Fair Game; Birthday Girl; Mojo) and Simon Godley (15 Storeys High; Comedy Nation), the film stars BAFTA Award winner Noel Clarke (Centurion; Doctor Who; Adulthood) and BAFTA Award nominee Johnny Harris (This Is England '86; Black Death) alongside Ralph Brown (Killing Bono; The Boat That Rocked), Thandie Newton (2012; ER), Tamsin Egerton (Camelot; Chalet Girl), Michelle Ryan (Merlin; Bionic Woman; Jekyll), Russell Tovey (Being Human) and Matt Berry (One Day; The IT Crowd).
Feuding comedy duo Warren and Clark (Harris and Clarke, respectively) have dreams of making it big. As they gig around the comedy clubs of deepest, darkest London struggling for recognition they discover an unforgiving, cutthroat comedy circuit that is incredibly difficult to break into. Facing overwhelming odds and rampant personal jealousy, Warren and Clark are beginning to wonder if they have what it takes to be the next big thing. Whatever the answer, this is definitely one double act you won't want to miss.
Miller's "affectionate and promising debut as filmmaker" (The Observer), "supported by a couple of terrific performances from his leads" (The Times), Huge also features appearances from a veritable Who's Who of British stand-up comedy talent including Stephen K. Amos, Ronni Ancona, David Baddiel, Kevin Bishop, Jo Brand, Alan Davies, Jack Dee, Hattie Hayridge, Harry Hill, Eddie Izzard, Rory McGrath, Sally Phillips and Frank Skinner.
