Event Originally produced by Gravitas in 2016.
Summary 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 fiancé. 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 AND FUNNY GUY is a music-infused spin on the road-trip buddy comedy. Winner of the Reel Social Club Indie Spirit Award at the **Denver International Film Festival**, Best Ensemble Cast at the **Napa Valley Film Festival** and nominated for the Jury Award at the **Tribeca Film Festival** *"[An] amiable feature that boasts the kind of old-school charm and chemistry that more comedies could stand to tap into." - Kate Erbland, **indieWire*** *"FOLK HERO AND FUNNY GUY is the kind of road trip movie where it's a pleasure to ride shotgun." - Glenn Whipp, **Los Angeles Times***
