Lemon trailer

Brett Gelman can simultaneously make one laugh as they want to cringe and shrivel up into a ball. He does so often on Netflix’s Love, but he’s brought that particularly great skillset to other comedies over the years. Gelman recently co-wrote and starred in a film which looks like it’ll have some good uneasy laughs, Lemon, which is co-written and directed by Janicza Bravo.

Below, watch the Lemon trailer.

dean trailer

At a glance, Dean sounds like a parody of what many people imagine modern indie cinema to be: a comedian making his directorial debut casts himself in a more-dramatic-than-usual role to tell the story of a morose guy struggling with grief who has to balance family obligations with a new woman in his life. However, Dean has something going for it – the comedian making his directorial debut and starring in that more-dramatic-than-usual role is the very talented and very funny Demetri Martin and the first trailer is here to sell you on the whole thing.

Before Mickey (Gillian Jacobs) and Gus (Paul Rust) return for season two of Love, Netflix decided to share the good news: they’ve already renewed the Judd Apatow-produced series for a third season. We’re already guaranteed more time with these charming but flawed characters.

But before we see the current state of their relationship, another show — an entirely different show — premieres on FX. That series is called Feud: Bette and Joan, which you can watch a new trailer for.

Don't Think Twice Viral Video

Playing in 100 locations around the country right now is the sophomore writing/directing effort of comedian turned filmmaker Mike Birbiglia. He made a splash at Sundance a few years ago with the charming, semi-autobiographical Sleepwalk with Me, and now he’s back with a movie called Don’t Think Twice, focusing on a group of tight-knit friends in an improv troupe. The film is in the same vein as Broadcast News and other films from James L. Brooks, just set in the world of improv comedy, and it’s truly a must-see.

Now in an efforts to help promote the movie, producers forced Mike Birbiglia to create a viral video to make more people aware of the movie. Sadly, this resulted in cast members Gillian Jacobs (Community), Keegan-Michael Key (Key and Peele), Kate Micucci (Garfunkel and Oates), Chris Gethard (Broad City), and Tami Sagher (Inside Amy Schumer) all getting the viral video virus. Watch the Don’t Think Twice viral video after the jump. Read More »

brother nature trailer

The 42nd season of Saturday Night Live won’t hit the airwaves until later this fall, but comedy fans may be able to get their fix with the new movie Brother Nature, which features its fair share of SNL veterans. You’ve seen this premise a dozen times before before – the uptight guy must survive a vacation with his girlfriend’s wacky family – but there are some very funny people involved on both sides of the camera, including Taran Killam and Bobby Moynihan. Can they freshen up a tired premise? Let’s run that new trailer footage and take a look.

Don't Think Twice

Mike Birbiglia started out as a stand-up comedian before transitioning into filmmaking with 2011’s loosely autobiographical Sleepwalk With Me, based on one of his stand-up acts. It was solid and sweet and lots of fun, but it’s his second film, Don’t Think Twice, that should really mark him as an indie director to watch.

The dramedy, which premiered at SXSW this spring and is now headed for a summer release, follows the members of a scrappy New York improv troupe played by Birbiglia, Gillian Jacobs, Keegan-Michael Key, Chris Gethard, Kate Micucci, and Tami Sagher. The close-knit circle finds itself in disarray when one of their number gets catches a huge break. It’s laugh-out-loud hilarious and painfully honest and above all, deeply empathetic, and it’ll ring all too true to anyone who’s ever found themselves feeling stuck in life. Watch the Don’t Think Twice trailer after the jump. Read More »

don't think twice review

Good comedy is the result of long-simmering pain. A comedian struggles on stage, bombing in front of impatient audiences, for years before learning how to be funny. A hilarious actor waits tables while desperately hoping to get cast in that first defining role. And even after so much suffering and so much hard work, the vast majority of talented people still slip through the cracks, watching as others, sometimes friends, stumble into big breaks.

This is the world of Mike Birbiglia‘s Don’t Think Twice, a thoughtful comedy tinged with both melancholy and hope. Set within the New York City improv comedy scene, Birbiglia’s sophomore effort as a director captures the joy of creation and the agony of creative stagnation – anyone who has ever struggled to make something will laugh and cry and find a great deal of the film hitting very close to home.
