Media Excentrique was established in 1999 - under the original name of Growling Clown Entertainment.  In the early days we ran and promoted stand-up comedy shows (under the name 'Funny Bones Comedy') - and worked with such comics as Sarah Millican, Kevin Bridges, Chris Ramsey, Russell Howard, John Bishop, Alan Carr and Jason Manford before they all went on to much bigger things. 

We also produced the theatre show 'Cabaret Excentrique' - which was a throwback to the old days of vaudeville and music hall entertainment with performers from fields such as burlesque, circus, freakshow, music, comedy and dance - all performing in one show.  The first club night we ran was called "House of the Golden Lotus", and featured freakshow and burlesque performers with a very broad and eclectic range of music - we even had bizarre walkabout characters, and a freakshow tent !!

In 2009 we produced our first feature film - the comedy horror B-Movie "Zombie Women of Satan" which premiered at the UK's biggest horror film festival 'Frightfest' in 2010, and also created a splash at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival ...

The next three B-Movies we produced were "Zombie Women of Satan 2" (which our worldwide distributor re-named to "Female Zombie Riot"), "Clown Panic" - a spoof documentary about the genuine UK/US clown uprising of October 2016 ... and "Coulrophobia - Terror Trip" (which was compared to the early films of Rob Zombie).  The first documentary we produced was about latex fashion and fetish .. but our most successful docu to date is one focussing on all of the strange happenings at Loch Ness.

In late 2
023, our worldwide film distributor released four more of our documentaries - three of which centre on the paranormal, and the other of which is all about the UK swinging scene.  We have also released a ninety minute documentary about the UK burlesque scene - which is free to view on YouTube .....  

Media Excentrique are also responsible for Newcastle Upon Tyne's monthly 'Grindhouse Rock Night' (which launched in Nov 2014) ... and we also run the three quarterly club nights -  'Rudeness' (ska/rockabilly/punk), 'Loveadelic' (70s disco & funk), and 'Gearbox' (80s goth, new wave, post-punk and indie).

In August 2024 we plan to shoot our next feature - 'Perversity', a disturbing and graphic tale about an estranged father and son who degenerate into serial killers, but who end up abducting a young woman who may just be worse than they are ....

And we're also working on an online sitcom about a hopeless black metal band called
"Lucifer's Middle Finger" ....

Trailer below for our horror mov
ie "Coulrophobia : Terror Trip" .....
