A Place For Film - Road Comics With Professor Susan Seizer

Susan Seizer discussing comedy with Tim Northern

Episode 97 - Discussing Road Comics With Professor Susan Seizer

On this week's episode, we're discussing the film Road Comics: Big Work On Small Stages. The film is about traveling stand-up comedians, and will show at the IU Cinema on September 30th. We're discussing the film with IU Professor Susan Seizer, the producer of the film.

We start with What Have You Seen Lately, and Jason passes this week, but Andy and Susan fill in with several films from the Cinema, including the third week in a row of discussing a Svankmajer film.

We then get into our discussion of Road Comics. This film follows three stand-up comedians who travel the country doing shows in small bars and other venues. The comedians are three very different people, and the film covers how they got started, what they're doing now, and also talks about the state of the comedy club with different comedy club owners.

It's a great documentary, and a very funny film. Well worth checking out.
