LOS ANGELES, Aug. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Production distribution company, Comedy Dynamics, in partnership with Ketchup Entertainment and Gravitas Ventures, release Are You Joking? – an indie film that pays tribute to the art of comedy, starring Sas Goldberg, Jake Wilson, Vanessa Ray, Hannibal Buress, Katherine Waterston, and James Wolk. The film will be available on digital platforms and TV On Demand platforms for cable, satellite and Telco systems, on September 18th, 2015.
The light-hearted comedy follows a twenty-something New Yorker, Barb Schwartz (Sas Goldberg), who is inspired by her ballet-dancing best friend (Jake Wilson) to indulge in her passion for comedy.
"A classic New York comedy in the best Woody Allen-Diane Keaton tradition of quirky characters in an even quirkier world," says Warren Cantrell of SCENE STEALERS. "Full of poignant laughs that mix well with the sillier ones, Mr. Wilson's picture is an impressive debut from a director and actress audiences will likely be seeing a lot of in the future."
Are You Joking? was a successful Official Selection in the Hollywood Film Festival, Seattle International Film Festival, and Gold Coast International Film Festival. It was also an Official Entry in the Palm Beach International Film Festival.
"There aren't really a lot of movies about stand-up comedy," says Brian Volk-Weiss president of Comedy Dynamics. "It's an art that I'm excited is being touched on in this film."
