Directed by Bobcat Goldthwait | 2015

A long-unsung hero of contemporary stand-up, Barry Crimmins blazed a trail through Boston’s 1980s comedy-club circuit, excoriating Reagan-era conservatism with his incendiary brand of social satire. In this loving documentary portrait, Crimmins protégé Bobcat Goldthwait grapples with his mentor’s ribald wit and prickly persona—and ultimately unravels a devastating account of the tragedy that led Crimmins to commit himself to political activism mid-career. Featuring interviews with admirers like Margaret Cho and Marc Maron, this tribute to an influential firebrand illuminates how trauma and outrage can fuel great comedy.
