Kickstarter for Documentary: Welcome To Bridgetown
A Look at Portland Oregon’s stand-up Comedy scene and the festival that helped catapult it to the top.
Directors Shannan Hunt and Adam Smith (Runner up for Best Film 2013 48 Hour Film Festival, Portland Film Festival 2013) are joined by Bridgetown Comedy Festival Co-Founder Kim Brady to produce what is a voyeuristic view on The Bridgetown Comedy Festival and what it is like to be a struggling comic in Portland. Jam-packed with interviews and stand-up material you are seriously going to laugh your ass off when you see what these comics have to say!
Originally slated to be a short film, it took on a life of it’s own and has developed into a movie that not only documents the festival itself, but pays homage to the entire Portland Stand-Up Comedy scene.
