Synopsis

CALL ME LUCKY tells the story of Barry Crimmins, a politically outspoken and whip-smart comic whose efforts in the 70s and 80s fostered the talents of the next generation of standup comedians. But beneath Crimmins’ gruff, hard-drinking, curmudgeonly persona lay an undercurrent of rage stemming from his long-suppressed and horrific abuse as a child – a rage that eventually found its way out of the comedy clubs and television shows and into the political arena. Featuring intimate interviews with both comedians and activists alike, director Bobcat Goldthwait’s (World’s Greatest Dad, God Bless America) CALL ME LUCKY is an inspiring, triumphant and wickedly funny portrait of one of comedy’s most enigmatic and important figures.
