When stand-up stood out ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From 1978 to 1988, America was in thrall to comedy. Comedy clubs ballooned from 22 to nearly 500, and hot comedians were pulling down six-figures annually and playing four or five sets a night. In this film, former stand-up comedian Fran Solomita examines the Boston comedy scene during this period, as talented newcomers Denis Leary, Janeane Garofalo, Steven Wright, Bobcat Goldthwait, and Colin Quinn honed their chops. There were meteoric rises cut short by envy, drug abuse, and financial chicanery, but there was also affection, integrity, soul, and hilarity in the hearts of Beantown's comedic community

In turn, the Bronx Bombers went on to win an incredible 26 World Series titles. The Sox finally won a Series in 2004, and the stories of their die-hard, long-suffering fans are told with insight and humor. This film focuses on the joy and shock of those fans who lived to see the breaking of the infamous "Curse of the Bambino."
