Starting this Friday, July 20th, Superlounge Director Jordan Brady will hit the road to film the short film: “I AM ROAD COMIC,” specifically examining life on the road for the working comedian. Brady will tag along with Comedian/Actor Wayne Federman (“Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “40-Year Old Virgin”) to Jack Diddley’s Comedy Club in the town of Kennewick, Washington to document the cost, crowds and laughs.
Federman plays larger venues, so a gig at Jack Diddley's is a return to a small club. For Brady, Jack Diddley's is a tremendous challenge in that he's a full-time commercial director.
“The Huffington Post” recently placed Brady’s feature film “I AM COMIC” at the top of its list of comedy-documentaries, an honor the director relishes. A former professional comedian himself, Brady will be opening for Federman. “This time it’s personal,” Brady says of his return to the road. Federman adds: “We’re gonna need a bigger boat!”
Due to the success of “I AM COMIC,” many top name comics have already expressed interest in being interviewed for the short film, which will hit the festival circuit this fall.
As part of their tour to Washington state, Brady and Federman will be interviewed by the local ABC affiliate/KVEW-TV anchor Crystal Costa for “Good Morning Northwest.”
