Excellent and very funny
3 August 2014 | by sfdphdSee all my reviews

I saw this film at the Jewish Film Festival in San Francisco. I thought it was hilarious and enjoyed it far more than I expected. I remembered David Steinberg from stand-up on Johnny Carson and the Smothers Brothers but my memories were vague. This film not only highlights David's personal story but also highlights excerpts from his comedy routines. I had forgotten how good his material was! Perhaps I didn't understand it all as a child but I certainly appreciate it now.

His significance in comedy history (and Carly Simon's music) was quite interesting. This is the kind of film that makes you want to tell your friends "Did you know.....?" They probably don't know many of the juicy tidbits you will learn in this documentary. If you like comedy and politics of the 1960's and 1970's, you will like this film...
