MAYOR OF COMEDY - HAMILTON FILM FESTIVAL

EVENT DESCRIPTION

TRADITIONAL OPENING NIGHT

The Hamilton Film Festival started at the Staircase Theatre and we would open on the first Monday in November. The Staircase Theatre is also a major hub for comedy in Hamilton so this program seemed super-fitting! 

 

HUMAN PEOPLE, Chris Kelly / Pat Kelly, 26m, Canada

Unlike anything on the comedy landscape right now, Human People takes the format of iconic, elevated doc series like Humans Of New York and This American Life and turns it on its head. This is not a sketch show or a parody- Human People explores real human emotions and stories, while serving up smart deadpan humor at every turn.

In Human People, you’ll dive into the world of a 46 year old aspiring ASMR star, a bro addicted to cuddling or Hollywood’s most successful extra.

 

MAYOR OF COMEDY, Matt Kelly, 75, Canada

THE MAYOR OF COMEDY is an eye-opening documentary that follows Canadian comedian Sandra Battaglini as she travels the country interviewing the biggest names in the comedy business and attempts to discover why standup isn't considered an art form in Canada.

The film features interviews with over 30 of Canada’s top comics including Scott Thompson (Kids In The Hall), Debra DiGiovanni (Conan), Mark Forward (Fargo), DeAnne Smith (Just For Laughs), Steve Patterson (The Debaters) and K-Trevor Wilson (Letterkenny).
