Andy Kindler presents "Modern Romance"

Every summer, Andy Kindler presents his much-anticipated “State of the Industry” address at the Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival. It is from these legendary “bite the hand that feeds you” take-downs of show business that Andy gained his reputation as the “comedian’s comedian.” One of his greatest followers is David Letterman, who not only brings Andy on The Late Show for stand-up segments, but also sends him out as a correspondent to get his take on everything from the Super Bowl, to tattoo parlors, to life coaches. We’re lucky to grab Andy from his busy touring schedule to get his take on Albert Brooks’ classic ‘80s cringe comedy, Modern Romance — a hilarious and gut-wrenching look at love, obsession, and hyper-neurosis. In a brilliant skewering of West Coast yuppie ennui, Brooks stars as a film editor whose emotional problems block him from enjoying even the simplest of love’s pleasures. Andy Kindler will be here at the Cinefamily to perform, as well as introduce the film, and participate in a Q&A afterwards!
Dir. Albert Brooks, 1981, 35mm, 93 min.
