Movie Info

Recently dumped by his fiancée and with a stagnating standup routine, aspiring comedian-slash-copywriter Paul (Alex Karpovsky) is stuck. The manager of the club where he performs suggests he take some time off to update his comedy material, and in waltzes his childhood friend Jason Black (Wyatt Russell), an acclaimed folk-rock musician about to embark on a solo acoustic tour of the east coast. Jason suggests Paul needs to get his mojo back-and he should start by opening for Jason on tour. They set off on the road together, picking up a new act (folk singer Bryn, played by Meredith Hagner) on the way. But when Jason reveals an ulterior motive behind the tour, rifts are exposed in their otherwise affable camaraderie. Folk Hero & Funny Guy is a music-infused spin on the road-trip buddy comedy.

Audience Reviews for Folk Hero & Funny Guy

  • Nov 18, 2017
    The film is a funny road trip drama that incorporates some of the funny character moments. Road Trip movies have the luxury of solving conflict and discovering yourself, most people do it in real life. The two leads are well cast and the film is full of fun support actors. The film never attempts to be a grand story and it hits the right beats by allowing the characters to be true. The music is really well done and adds further depth to the film, music can transcend a persons real feelings. The film has that dynamic between the two leads and most of the humour comes from their interactions. This was a nice surprise and one of the better indie films of 2017. 19-11-2017.
