A comedic mock-u-drama about a forgotten female comic.
The Margot Rourke Story is a short mock-u-drama about a fictional female humorist in the spirit of Dorothy Parker... but raunchier.
I'm asking for 5,000 to be spent on these things:
Festival Submission fees
I'm delighted to say who will act in this!
Dana Gould - worked on The Ben Stiller Show, The Simpsons, Real Time with Bill Maher and is one the best stand ups on earth right now.
A.J Bowen - star of A Horrible Way to Die, House of The Devil, The Signal and much more. As funny in real life as he is scary in movies, so he will be funny in this.
Davey Johnson - Star of commercials, Adventure Time, What's What and intimate indiscretions. He also does a pod cast called The Bone Zone.
Matt Peters - Super funny stand up and sketch comic, acted on a bunch of episodes of Weeds where he stalked Alanis Morissette.
Matt Gourley - Co-founder of the super amazing and groundbreaking podcast Superego he is a also a contributor to The Sound of Young America and a sought after improviser.
Jeff Crocker - Also a Superego "resident specialist" Jeff is a multi-talented performer and improviser.
MORE WILL BE ANNOUNCED LATER!
I'm a writer, stand up and sketch comic and act sometimes. Last year I co-wrote a movie called Smashed with Director James Ponsolt, it went to the 2012 Sundance film fest in Dramatic Competition. Folks seemed to like and it sold to Sony Pictures Classics. Smashed will be out this fall! (Yay!) I've also acted in lots of indie movies, I perform stand up and am part of a three female sketch trio Birds of Prey. I am also a pretty good cook. I mean it. If you give lots of money I will cook for you.
