Eaten by Lions
When Pete and Omar lose their beloved Gran they go in search of Omar’s estranged father, confronting him on the day of his daughters engagement party.
Omar and Pete are half brothers. When their Gran passes away, they go on a life changing road trip to find Omar’s birth Father. Armed with a biscuit tin containing a birth certificate, a photograph and their deceased mother’s diary, the pair of likely lads head on a quest that will change their lives forever. Along the way they meet a dodgy fortune teller, their racist aunt and uncle and a seedy guest house owner. What could possibly go wrong? What follows is a hilarious journey of self-discovery and the true meaning of family, set amongst the bright lights of Blackpool.
“A delightfully, and distinctively, British comedy, complete with outdated guesthouses, 2p arcade machines and awkward humour”
“Eaten by Lions will not consume your time and leave you hungry for more effective entertainment, it’ll fill the void with laughs and wacky characters worth rooting for, and it just so happens to be a wonderful tale of brotherly love and multiculturalism.”
“With a supporting cast filled with recognisable names such as Johnny Vegas and Asim Chaudhry, this is a pleasant seaside trip with its heart in the right place.”
