Abstract:

From 1978 to 1988, America was in thrall to comedy. Comedy clubs ballooned from 22 to nearly 500, and hot comedians were pulling down six-figures annually and playing four or five sets a night. In this film, former stand-up comedian Fran Solomita examines the Boston comedy scene during this period, as talented newcomers Denis Leary, Janeane Garofalo, Steven Wright, Bobcat Goldthwait, and Colin Quinn honed their chops. There were meteoric rises cut short by envy, drug abuse, and financial chicanery, but there was also affection, integrity, soul, and hilarity in the hearts of Beantown's comedic community.
