- DYING TO DO LETTERMAN
- 2011, Biagio Messina and Joke Fincioen, USA, 80 min.
In 2005, Steve Mazan was just another struggling young comic hoping to realize every comic’s dream: to be booked for the Late Show with David Letterman. Then he was diagnosed with inoperable liver cancer, and the picture changed but the dream didn’t. DYING TO DO LETTERMAN follows Mazan through a wild and crazy quest to beat the odds--the Letterman odds and those pesky cancer odds, all the while honing his art and sharpening his humor. With Kevin Nealon, Ray Romano, Brian Regan, and more. Named Honorable Mention for the Christopher Wetzel Award for Independent Film Comedy. HDCAM video. (BS)
Directors Biagio Messina and Joke Fincioen and star Steve Mazan will be present for audience discussion at both screenings.
