Dreamgun is a comedy conglomerate founded in 2014 by Stephen Colfer, Gavin Drea and
James McDonnell. Their series of short films include Millennials, Gym Gravy and Back in
Town. They now spend their days writing and performing Dreamgun Film Reads, a comedy
show where they take a beloved film script and stuff it full of jokes and nonsense. Each
script is then performed live by actors and comedians who haven’t had a chance to rehearse
beforehand and each show is recorded as a podcast, which was included in the BBC’s 10
Best Culture Podcasts of 2018. They have had sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe,
Adelaide Fringe and the Dublin Fringe, where they won the award for Best Ensemble. 2020
will also see them bring their show to the Melbourne Comedy Festival, Sydney Comedy
Festival and Underbelly Festival Southbank in London.
