Road Comics: Big Work on Small Stages (2012)
53min · Documentary, Comedy · 7 September 2012
Road Comics: Big Work on Small Stages is a documentary that follows the creative brilliance of three stand-up comics working the comedy club circuit in the "flyover zones" of middle America. It documents the perseverance of these working class artists making their living by being funny on the road. Their performances show that comedic talent is not exclusively a coastal media commodity, opening our eyes to what we might miss if we fly over the interesting. Local audiences across the Midwest and South appreciate the humor these comics draw out of malls, fast food, and the slow quirkiness of lives not made for TV.
