Entertainment trailer

Just a few years ago, Tim Heidecker starred in a bleak and strangely amusing look into the life of a comedian with the indie The Comedy, a Sundance selected film from director Rick Alverson. This time it’s Gregg Turkington, better known as stand-up comedian Neil Hamburger, taking us into the tortured psyche of a stand-up comedian, stuck in comedy purgatory.

Alverson is back behind the camera again with Entertainment, and the first trailer for the indie film has just arrived, showcasing Turkington’s oddball movie about an aging comedian still struggling as a small-time performer. It’s odd and fascinating, but doesn’t look like it’s going to be everybody’s cup of tea. Watch the Entertainment trailer after the jump! Read More »
