AN ODE TO THE ART & OCCUPATIONAL HAZARDS OF STAND-UP COMEDY
Directed by: Jordan Brady
Featuring: Sarah Silverman, Tim Allen, Jeff Foxworthy, Kathy Griffin, Jim Gaffigan, Chris Hardwick, Carrot Top, Andy Kindler, Nick Kroll, Larry Miller, Lewis Black, Margaret Cho, Ritch Shydner, Louis C.K., Janeane Garofalo, Carlos Mencia, Wayne Federman, Greg Giraldo, Todd Glass, Brian Regan, The Sklar Brothers
Through candid interviews and unprecedented backstage access, this documentary explores the world of the working comedian and reveals a funny psychological profile of its practitioners. Also, we follow a retired comic's attempt to get back on stage after a thirteen-year absence. Ritch Shydner, at the top of his game in the 1980's, had HBO specials, shot five pilot TV shows, and had numerous late night appearances (Carson, Letterman, Leno, etc.) but never reached the big time. Ritch gives it another shot, but the scene has changed. Does Ritch have what it takes to connect with today's young crowds, and still get the laughs?
