Q&A with filmmaker Jonathan Miller
Wednesday, September 25
An ultra-Orthodox Jew, a couch-surfing janitor and an Egyptian lawyer walk into a comedy club…and end up in a documentary. David Finklestein lives for standup, but risks expulsion from his community with every show; Sara Parks quits work and ends up nearly homeless chasing her mic dreams; and Raafat Toss is a lawyer who would toss everything to make it as a funnyman. Put to the test again and again, each aspiring comic must decide just how far they’ll go -- and how much they’ll sacrifice -- for a laugh.
Jonathan Miller / Documentary / USA / 74 min.
