We’re working with Nichiki TV from Japan, following the Los Angeles Police Department’s Animal Cruelty Task Force. Nothing like this exists in Japan and they’re fascinated by what we’re seeing on the streets of LA.  This will be part of the “All Dog Special”, a successful annual 2-hour program on the Nippon TV network.  Their ratings are off the charts by current US standards:  20+!!

It’s 1980 in San Francisco.  Comic geniuses Robin Williams and Dana Carvey spearhead a new era of stand-up comedy.   Next in line for the “big time” are three talented comics:  Will Durst, Larry “Bubbles” Brown and Johnny Steele. But then, the comedy “crash” hits.   Now, like millions of other downsized Americans, Will, Larry and Johnny scramble to survive, while also staying funny, relevant, and true to the art form they love.

3 Still Standing - On Stage

Oct 4, 8 & 10

We’ve been married for 20 years and we make documentary films for a living - mostly for TV networks.  A recent move back to San Francisco and  a night at the Punchline started us down a new road.


We decided to make a film about the wild comedy scene in San Francisco in the 1980s.  We were big fans and everyone agrees that it was a unique time: unfettered, inventive, and outrageous. 


But as we reached out to comics who were there, we discovered a much broader story - a David & Goliath stand-off in which indie comics struggle against a behemoth entertainment machine.


We have thirty years experience in film and television and a deep passion for our work.  Along the way, we've collected many awards for our work, including a Peabody Award, a Robert F. Kennedy Award for Journalism, and a national Emmy Award.  


3 Still Standing is our first independent feature documentary and we’re tremendously excited about it.  Lately, we’ve been on the road, trying our best to get this story out there.  We’ve also been laughing a lot.
