Comic On A Half Shell


Are stand up comedians born or are they made? The answer to this historic nature versus nurture issue was put to the test when Garrison Leykam took the stage for his "Comic On A Half Shell" debut performance after taking Stephen Rosenfield's Stand Up Workshop and debuting at New York City’s famed Gotham Comedy Club. After appearing as a guest on Leykam's Conversation Crossroad radio show, Rosenfield (dubbed "the best known comedy teacher in the country" by The New York Times and founder of the American Comedy Institute) challenged him to take his course which includes an appearance at The Gotham Comedy Club. 'The Gotham' has been host to such comedy legends as Robert Klein, Jerry Seinfeld, Lewis Black, Jackie Mason and many others. "Becoming a stand up comic is something I've never done. It's totally out of my comfort zone," remarks Leykam, "but I'm never one to shy away from a challenge." And, Rosenfield has a track record of success teaching even beginners how to write solid, original material and to be well-rehearsed to perform in front of a "live" audience. The documentary “Comic On A Half Shell” follows Garrison as he experiences what it’s really like to bare it all in front of a “live” audience and work for laughs.

Radio talk show host Garrison Leykam learns what it takes to be a stand up comedian

Comic On A Half Shell Trailer Released

“Are stand up comedians born or are they made?” The answer to this nature versus nurture issue was put to the test when radio talk show host Garrison Leykam took the stage for his "Comic On A Half Shell" debut performance at The Gotham Comedy Club.
 
After appearing as a guest on Leykam's Conversation Crossroad radio show, Stephen Rosenfield (dubbed "the best known comedy teacher in the country" by The New York Times and founder of the American Comedy Institute) challenged him to take his Stand Up Comedy Workshop and appear at The Gotham Comedy Club. "Becoming a stand up comic is something I've never done. It's totally out of my comfort zone," remarked Leykam, "but I'm never one to shy away from a challenge so I took Stephen up on it."

“Comic On A Half Shell” is a visual masterpiece about stand up comedy that pulls the curtain back to reveal for viewers just what it takes to try and be funny in front of a “live” audience, especially for someone who’s never done it. On another level, anyone watching the film cannot help but be motivated to pursue his or her dreams learning to overcome one’s fears in the process of experiencing a new life triumph.

The Comic On A Half Shell documentary was directed by Michael McGovern with original music by rorie kelly and art direction and graphic design by Christopher Leykam.
