Check out the first trailer for the upcoming stand-up documentary I Need You To Kill. Featuring Tom Segura, Pete Lee, and Chad Daniels. The documentary was written, edited, and directed by J. Elvis Weinstein.
J. Elvis Weinstein is a writer and performer best known for his roles as Dr. Laurence Erhardt and the original puppeteer and voice for Tom Servo and Gypsy on Mystery Science Theater 3000. After leaving MST3K, he went on to become a writer for The Young Person’s Guide to Becoming a Rock Star, Malcolm and Eddie, and he wrote and produced the critically acclaimed NBC dramedy Freaks and Geeks. He has also written material for Garry Shandling, Dennis Miller, Roseanne Barr, Louie Anderson and other comedians.
Here are the three comics featured in the documentary:
Tom Segura is a comedian originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, though he was raised in too many places to list. His television credits include Conan, Comedy Central Presents (half-hour special), Showtimes’ Russell Peters Presents, and Live at Gotham! When he’s not on tour he continues to perform at the top comedy festivals in the world, including Montreal’s Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, The Melbourne International Comedy Festival, The Comedy Festival – Las Vegas, The South Beach Comedy Festival, and The Global Comedy Festival in Vancouver. Segura also regularly appears on syndicated radio shows The Bob and Tom Show and The Jim Rome show. Additionally, his noted podcast, Your Mom’s House can be heard weekly right here. Segura’s debut album Thrilled is available right here.
Pete Lee might be the nicest person in New York City, but that’s because it’s impossible to sound aggressive with a Wisconsin accent. Lee was raised in Janesville, WI by divorced parents and a 19-inch television, which is probably why he pursued a career in entertainment. In 2005, he flew to New York to make his television debut on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend. That same night, he met his future wife, and she made him move to Manhattan. Soon after moving to NYC, he was selected to perform at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, where he was voted a standout performer. In 2008 Pete made his network television debut performing on NBC’s Last Comic Standing finishing as a semi-finalist. That same year, he made his television acting debut on the CBS Soap Opera As The World Turns, lasting two episodes. At the end of 2008 he then shot his own Comedy Central Half Hour Special, which earned him a “cult” following at comedy clubs, and the opportunity to perform over the next four years at 500 colleges across the country. His other credits include Video on Trial, NFL Network’s Top 10’s and VH1’s Best Week Ever.
Daniel’s devilishly naughty nature shines through like comedy gold when he takes the stage. His disarming personality allows him to push boundaries only the truly funny attempt. His edgy style usually begins by splitting the room into two equally stunned fractions and then miraculously ends up with everyone leaving the club with a new favorite comedian. Plenty of comics have jokes about marriage and children, but few speak about the experience with such uncompromising honesty. In 2004 he performed in the New Faces show at the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. He’s been on the Late Late Show. In 2006 Daniels appeared on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham. He’s got four albums including Two Minutes for Stale Hacking, Busy Being Awesome, You’re the Best, and Natural Selection. Oh, and he’s been on Conan.
