Barry Crimmins is the funniest comedian that you’ve never heard of. As a young and hungry comic in the ’70s, he founded his own Boston comedy club, fostering the careers of legends such as Steven Wright, Denis Leary and even Bobcat Goldthwait. A venerated member of America’s comic community, Crimmins’ scathingly ribald stand-up style took early audiences by force. Through stark, smart observation and judo-like turns of phrase, his rapid-fire comedy was a war on ignorance and complacency in ’80s America at the height of an ill-considered foreign policy. Alas, beneath Crimmins’ gruff, hard-drinking, curmudgeonly persona lay an undercurrent of rage stemming from a dark secret from his past – a rage that eventually found its way out of the comedy clubs and television shows and into the political arena. Featuring interviews with Margaret Cho, Marc Maron, David Cross and Patton Oswalt plus a swath of stand-up footage, Call Me Lucky bravely tells Crimmins’ incredible story of transformation from a rage-fueled funnyman into an acclaimed proponent of justice who personifies the healing power of comedy.
