Cinerruption Live | Speed
On Wed. March 28 at 7:30 p.m. a group of local comics will lampoon the classic ’90s film Speed as part of the Charleston Music Hall’s new series, Cinerruption LIVE! In this show, three Charleston comedians on three mics watch the film with you, providing a hilarious commentary track to whatever B-movie they are showing. This month, the comedians take on, Speed, the 1994 Keanu Reeves movie about a bus that will explode if it goes below 50 mph. We’re talking crazy police chases, a bomb (!), and Sandra freakin’ Bullock. What’s not to love?
