The Comedy Film Nerds Guide to Movies: Featuring Dave Anthony, Lord Carrett, Dean Haglund, Allan Havey, Laura House, Jackie Kashian, Suzy Nakamura, ... Schmidt, Neil T. Weakley, and Matt Weinhold Paperback – June 10, 2012
|New from||Used from|
"The Comedy Film Nerds Guide to Movies" brings what has been missing from movie discussion for too long: A healthy dose of humor. This is the first time ever two filmmakers who are also comedians give their views on film. It will bring movie discussion to a younger audience in a way they can relate to it without all the stodgy film school discussion. This is a movie book for film and comedy fans, by filmmakers and comedians. In the way that Jon Stewart and Bill Mahr have brought comedy to politics, Chris and Graham will do this for film.
About the Author
Graham Elwood and Chris Mancini, both professional award-winning filmmakers and comedians, who have both screened and spoken at film festivals all over the world, including Slamdance and Comic-Con in San Diego, created Comedyfilmnerds.com to mind meld the idea of real movie talk and real funny. And they called in all of their professionally funny and filmy friends to help them. Comedians and writers from The Tonight Show, Late Night with David Letterman, The X-Files, Comedy Central, HBO, and Showtime tell you what’s what on their favorite film genres.

If you like movies you will like this book. Also be sure to check out the Comedy Film Nerds Podcast, it is like reading this book every week.Published on June 21, 2013 by Raymond Ghrigsby
I expected this to be at least mildly amusing. Instead, it is fairly boring and predictable, politically correct and written at a college newspaper level. Read morePublished on June 20, 2013 by Robert T. Ives
