In March 2020 every comedian had two choices… adapt or die. It was a test to their mettle. The live entertainment business was one of the first to shut down and the last to open. The industry got really scrappy whether it be outdoor shows, virtual shows, or more digital content. Many figured out a way.
2020 A Comedy Special is a look into some people that just wouldn’t let COVID get the best of them highlighting some of the biggest stories of the last year – such as producer Soul Joel who tenaciously made Royersford PA a destination for outdoor comedy. Or the owners of NY Comedy Club who seemed to make any available penthouse in the city a stand-up stage. Drive in shows, livestreams, and everything in between; 2020 forced comedy to evolve and this doc provides an inside look as to just how it did.
With interviews for club owners, producers, and comedians.
2020 A Comedy Special premieres this summer.
