CALL ME LUCKY
2015, MPI Media Group, 106 min, USA, Dir: Bobcat Goldthwait

Director Bobcat Goldthwait’s triumphant and wickedly funny documentary profiles Barry Crimmins, whose Boston club fostered the careers of countless comedians, Goldthwait among them. In the 1980s, Crimmins was known as a political satirist; spurred by a horrific personal history, he became an equally fierce crusader offstage. Celebrated comedians including Steven Wright, David Cross, Margaret Cho and Tom Kenny weigh in on the man’s inspiring transformation from standup to advocacy in this remarkable portrait. “A terrifically engaging surprise.” - Dennis Harvey, Variety
