Featuring not-to-be missed performances from today’s most hilarious stand-up comedians including Denis Leary, Janeane Garofalo, Paula Poundstone, Bobcat Goldthwait, Colin Quinn, Lenny Clarke, Steven Wright, Kevin Meany, Kenny Rogerson and many more.
Through of a series of candid interviews, news reports and never-before-seen bootleg footage, follow 20-year comedy veteran Fran Solomita as he takes a revealing journey back to the late 70’s and 80’s, an era many consider the golden age of stand-up.
Directed by Solomita, the film gives an unfiltered and hilarious viewpoint of what many consider the flashpoint of the biggest national stand-up explosion ever, with comedians possessed with that precarious blend of originality, pure desire and good old-fashioned desperation.
An escalation that began with about two dozen comedy clubs scattered across the country and at the peak, ballooned to over 450 full-time rooms operating nationwide, spawning a gigantic new wave of comedians that we know and love today.
