The stand-ups at L.A.’s hottest comedy club, run by formidable Goldie, react to rising star Clay Appuzzo’s big Tonight Show with Johnny Carson appearance in unexpected ways. Comics Cassie and Bill are most affected while veteran performers Ralph and Edgar are happy to see one of their own succeed. Eager to join L.A.’s burgeoning comedy scene, Boston transplants Eddie and Ron are surprised by their unorthodox accommodations, and up-and-comer Adam is forced into a compromising situation.
The screening will be followed by an extended Q&A moderated by Doug Benson with Michael Aguilar, Melissa Leo, Ari Graynor, Andrew Santino, Erik Griffin, Al Madrigal, Michael Angarano and Clark Duke.
