The Awkward Comedy Show

So, The Awkward Comedy  Show is a documentary of sorts which showcases the Awkward Kings of Comedy, namely Victor Varnado, Baron Vaughn, Eric Andre and SNL writer Hannibal Buress.

According to the Amazon summary -
Comic Marina Franklin interviews the Awkward Kings, whose ranks include alternative stand-up artists Victor Varnado, Hannibal Buress, Eric Andr√© and Baron Vaughn. The film captures their antics on and off the stage through group hang-out sessions, informal interviews and personal vignettes animated by underground comic book artists. While the Kings each have their own wacky style, they all have two things in common: they re all a little weird, and they all challenge our preconceptions of what black comedy is and can be. 

Riffing on topics ranging from Shakespeare to science fiction, THE AWKWARD KINGS inject black comedy with a fresh and nerdy new style.

By all accounts, it's very good and it's available to buy on Amazon now at -

Do it!
