“ENTERTAINING AND INCISIVE”- MICK LASALLE, SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
San Francisco Theatrical Premiere!
Tom Sawyer, director David C. Schendel, and comedians IN PERSON!
When a fire destroys Cobb’s Comedy Club in San Francisco, defiant owner Tom Sawyer and his crew of comedians rebuild it, hoping to revive the struggling indie comedy scene. As a breeding ground for young comedians, Cobb’s could not be equaled. Jim Carrey, Dana Carvey, Paula Poundstone, Bob Saget, Ellen DeGeneres, Bob Goldthwait, Bill Maher, Kevin Pollak and many more developed at this small club. Through newly uncovered archival footage of the comics and unlimited access to the club, David C. Schendel (Yank Tanks, 2003) documents the roller coaster ride to re-open the legendary independent venue and keep it open against all odds.
Directed by David C. Schendel. United States. 2021. 90 minutes.
