Channel 4 commissioned a series of Blaps based on the club, directed by the award-winning film maker and animator Chris Shepherd, which John-Luke wrote and starred in.

Praise for 2016's "John-Luke Roberts Builds A Monster"

"This is alternative comedy close to its pinnacle" **** Chortle

"A show as bafflingly stupid as this should rightly divide an audience down the middle, but through some strange alchemy the crowd absolutely lap it up... a consistently hilarious hour of measured madness" **** The List

"Often baffling, but invariably brilliantly funny." **** Fest

"From the moment he takes the stage, John-Luke Roberts captivates... weird, wonderful and thoroughly enjoyable" **** The Advertiser (Adelaide)

Praise for the Alternative Comedy Memorial Society

“A euphoric hour of pure comedy risk-taking that leaves you with an infectious energy long after the show has finished.” BROADWAY BABY *****
