The Comedians

Sunday, March 15
1:00PM - 1:45PM

Vimeo Theater
201 Trinity St

The Comedians is a behind-the-scenes “documentary” starring Billy Crystal and Josh Gad about the making of a new sketch comedy show called The Billy & Josh Show… starring Billy Crystal and Josh Gad. Working as a comedy team proves easier said than done when Billy and Josh are reluctantly paired together and discover their sensibilities don’t always mesh. Stephnie Weir, Matt Oberg, and Megan Ferguson co-star as part of the team behind “The Billy & Josh Show”, who spend most of their time managing the egos of their two stars and the generational divide that keeps them from ever fully seeing eye to eye.

This episodic screening will be followed by an extended 30 minute Q&A with creators and talent.
