If you really want to see “behind the curtain” when it comes to finding out what stand-up comedy is really all about…
You MUST see I Am Comic directed by Jordan Brady.
This amazing film features dozens of stand-up comedy stars like Tim Allen, Sara Silverman, Jeff Foxworthy, Jim Gaffigan, Kathy Griffin, Tommy Davidson and many more!
I should also mention that myself (Steve Roye) and my Comedy Evaluator Pro software are also featured in this film (much to my surprise).
Through unprecedented backstage access and candid interviews, the film weaves through the absurd world of the working comedian and reveals a crazy and hilarious psychological profile of its practitioners.
Retired comedian Ritch Shydner is the host and the film also chronicles his attempt to climb back on stage after a thirteen-year hiatus.
At the top of the world in stand-up comedy in the 1980’s, Shydner had HBO specials, shot five pilot TV shows, and had numerous late night appearances (Carson, Letterman, Leno, etc.) but the big time eluded him.
In the film, Ritch takes another shot at stand-up comedy.
Does Ritch have what it takes to connect with today’s young crowds and still get the laughs?
I’ll give you a hint: You don’t want to miss the part where I use Comedy Evaluator Pro to evaluate one of his stand-up comedy sets filmed for the movie. You’ll be shocked…
