One of America’s fastest-rising comedians, Bill Burr, wields his razor-sharp wit with rare skill. In this performance, Bill takes aim at the stuff that drives us crazy: political correctness gone haywire and his views against population control for animals and girlfriends, or as he calls them, relentless psycho robots. A keenly observant social commentator, he is also one of the funniest voices in comedy today and a participant in LaughFest 2013. Rated R.

Going way beyond the funny, filmmaker Jordan Brady crafts an eye-opening portrait of the life of a professional comedian, shadowing retired comic Ritch Shydner as he bravely returns to the stand-up stage after more than a decade out of the spotlight. With the aid of candid interviews, backstage footage and performance clips, the film also rounds up advice from many popular comedians on what makes modern audiences laugh. Rated R.
