Movie Info

The documentary When Stand Up Stood Out charts the stand-up comedy boom and then decline that took place in Boston during the late seventies and eighties. Consisting of both vintage footage from the era and interviews with the people who were a part of the scene, the film showcases how this fertile comedic territory produced such famous names as Steven Wright, {Denis Leary}, Bobcat Goldthwait, Colin Quinn, and Paula Pundstone. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Fran Solomita can hold his breath and stamp his feet, but that isn't going to make 1970s-to-80s Boston much more than a footnote in the history of stand-up comedy
