Folk Hero & Funny Guy (2017)
The worlds of stand-up comedy and indie rock collide in the Tribeca Film Festival breakout hit Pitchfork calls “a joy to join.” Struggling comedian Paul Scott (Girls’ Alex Karpovsky) is invited to open for his successful rocker buddy, Jason Black (22 Jump Street’s Wyatt Russell), on his solo acoustic tour from Boston to Atlanta. Jason hopes the trip will help Paul get his ‘mojo back’ after being dumped by his fiance. The misadventures begin as the pair set off on the road, picking up a new act, Bryn (Search Party’s Meredith Hagner) along the way. But their long standing friendship is tested when Jason reveals an ulterior motive behind the tour. Joined by David Cross (Arrested Development), Michael Ian Black (Wet Hot American Summer), Hannah Simone (New Girl), Melanie Lynskey (Up In The Air) and Heather Morris (Glee), Folk Hero & Funny Guy is a music-infused spin on the road-trip buddy comedy.
