Chicago Comedy Film Festival Kick Off Party

Event Description

The 2011 Chicago Comedy Film Festival is the first national film fest devoted entirely to comedy, and they’re having their kick off party at 5 Rabbit Brewery, purveyors of Mexican style craft beers. Enjoy the brews and watch two films:

QUINCY ROSE SHOW (24 Min)

In this half-hour comedy, Quincy Rose plays a caricature of himself: witty, neurotic, intellectual misfit struggling to make it as a writer in Hollywood. Though desperate to enjoy the status of a celebrated writer, the last thing he is actually prepared to do is sit down and write. His antics and rituals satirically showcase the many ironies of life set against the backdrop of the entertainment industry – Quincy’s own identity, the greatest parody. As an egomaniac with an inferiority complex, Quincy unabashedly self-promotes the legacies of his father, Mickey Rose, the venerated comedy writer; and godfather, Woody Allen, the prolific American filmmaker, as his own.

SUDDEN DEATH (19 Min)

Winner Mexico International Film Festival, Shanghai International Film Festival and six others.

Starring: Matt Lutz (Bringing Down The House), Autumn Hurlbert, Doug Jones (Adaptation, Hellboy), John Larroquette, Mark Christopher Lawrence (Chuck, The Pursuit of Happyness)

This short film has taken over the festival circuit by storm and has been an award winning audience favorite! Los Angeles has been overtaken by a virus known as Sudden Death Syndrome, a disease that causes its victim to die suddenly and has only one symptom… spontaneously breaking into well-choreographed song and dance.

The festival runs the 14th and 15th. Eight features and over twenty shorts. Enjoy!
