STAND UP/STAND UP COMPANION

standup-ssA comparative look at the stand up comedy theatrical releases and feature films of three comedians. Part of COMEDIANS IN FILM.

Kicking off our summer series, Comedians in Film, is a comparative look at electrifying comics Eddie Murphy, Richard Pryor and Andrew Dice Clay who took the big leap from stage to screen. This corresponding midnite and brunch program looks at how these theatrical films swept the world, positioning them to take center stage in Hollywood: Eddie Murphy in Eddie Murphy: Raw and Beverly Hills Cop, Richard Pryor in Richard Pryor Live on the Sunset Strip and Blue Collar, Andrew Dice Clay in Dice Rules and The Adventures of Ford Fairlane.

This series doesn't have any movies associated with it.
