About the Movie
In a famous story, a terminally ill comedian is visited by Death, who comforts the performer, pointing out, “Hey, dying is easy. Now comedy… that’s hard!” Well, Jimmy Shubert sure ain’t dead yet. With his new Film “Alive & Kickin’,” this one-time “Outlaw of Comedy” and more recent resident of both the small and large screens has put himself behind the camera, directing a cast of his friends and fellow comedians as they eulogize (and eventually try to grave-rob) their dear old friend, Jimmy Shubert. The star-packed short film is followed by a full hour of Shubert’s stand-up, wherein he brings his modern-day Archie Bunker persona to the masses, features a short film with cameos from friends including Gary Valentine (King of Queens, Stuck on You), Billy Gardell (Heist, You, Me, & Dupree), and Joey “Coco” Diaz (Spiderman 2, The Longest Yard, My Name is Earl). He combines well-honed material with a relaxed stage presence of a slightly hammy class-clown with an eye for the ridiculous and a barbed tongue. As the middle child of seven brothers and tour mate of Sam Kinison’s, Shubert grew up with some serious defense mechanisms, and if not with his fists, he’s always gonna come out swinging with his wits.
