RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Broadway, From West End

Taking the subject of comedy seriously, Comedians electrified Broadway audiences with its look at the ethics of getting a laugh in the world of stand-up comics. Students taking a night class for aspiring comedians work up their acts, perform and fail or succeed depending on whether or not they cater to the crass, philistine views of a talent agent.
