A celebration of the local talent in our community.
COMEDY DURING CORONA, Brian Chu. 2022. 33 min.
When the pandemic forced all NYC nightlife to shutdown, a rebellious group of stand up comics took their jokes outside to the people. One of the city’s funniest comics (Mahdiy Drummond) takes us through this unprecedented time as comedians began producing shows at parks, rooftops, and even underground. The stand up comedy scene becomes the wild wild west and the beautiful chorus of New Yorkers laughing replaced the harrowing sounds of sirens.
INSIDER, Dylan Case. 2023. 38 min.
A guy watches Bo Burnham's Inside and decides he could do something like that. A music and comedy special ensues.
