Mighty Warriors of Comedy DVD

Description

Female Circumcision. Dancing Testicles. Chinese Geishas. These subjects are the basis for an average day of side-splitting sketch comedy from the 18 Mighty Mountain Warriors, an audacious pan-Asian comedy troupe from California. Hailed as one of the most devastatingly funny acts of the past decade, most of America has never heard of them. Mighty Warriors of Comedy provides a rousing introduction to the members and a thoughtful exploration of whether or not after twelve years of performing, the group will break out. The film traces the struggle that fringe artists face, and how that battle is complicated further by cultural identification.



The DVD includes:

• "Mighty Warriors of Comedy," the 1-hour PBS documentary

• "Hatest Grits," a 1-hour "best-of" concert film by the 18mmw

• "Partners in Crime," a short doc about other API comedic groups/individuals

• "Sukiprata" trailer

• About cast & crew, and more...
