"ALL JOKING ASIDE GIVES US BUT A GLIMPSE OF THE PAIN BEHIND THE SMILES, BUT LIKE AN EVENING AT A COMEDY CLUB, LEAVES US WITH A GOOD-NATURED GRIN."
ROB RECTOR; FILM THREAT
"THE UNDERSTATED ASSUREDNESS IN ALL AREAS ALLOWS ITS CENTRAL MESSAGE TO SPEAK VOLUMES: FEMALE COMEDIANS AREN’T AS COMMONLY SEEN IN CLUBS AS MEN ARE BECAUSE THEY’RE NOT BEING GIVEN THE SAME CHANCES TO PROVE THAT THEY CAN MAKE AUDIENCES LAUGH."
SIMON WHITLOCK; IN THEIR OWN LEAGUE
"...SOLID PERFORMANCES FROM HAREWOOD AND MARKINSON MAKE THIS FILM WORTH WATCHING."
MICHAEL MCNEELY; PATRON & PEARL
ABOUT THE FILM
CHARLENE wants nothing more than to become a stand-up comedian, but life won't stop getting in the way of her ambitions. From her soul-sucking job, to the heartbreaking estrangement from her family, to that bully who heckles her first amateur night gig, she just can't catch a break. But when she discovers that the heckler, BOB CARPENTER, actually used to be a big name on the comedy circuit before his career crashed and burned, she turns to him for mentorship; a request that is quickly shot down by the now grizzled barfly. But Charlene is tenacious, and over time the two find something in each other that has been missing in their own lives, a friendship is born, and Charlene learns to find funny in places she never expected.

100% of the proceeds from film rentals and donations will support Stand Up! Girls (standupgirlsnyc.org), a non-profit dedicated to educating, inspiring and equipping girls from underserved communities with the communication skills necessary to succeed in and lead male-dominated workplaces.
