We will begin with a half hour of submitted comedy shorts at 1pm followed by a screening of Jordan Brady's "I Am Comic". This movie has been screened all over the country including at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival and last fall at the Cucalorus Film Festival right here in Wilmington, NC. The film is one of our favorites here at The Cape Fear Comedy Festival because of the true insight it gives not only to aspiring comics but also to fans of stand-up comedy.
This will be followed by another 25 minute block of submitted comedy shorts after which we will screen a new comedy documentary called "Alone Up There". This film chronicles a
young comic's first open-mic attempt (director Sean Shaul), horror stories from veteran comedians and advice from them to Sean regarding his first attempt at comedy. Very eye opening doc about the ups and downs of doing comedy along with many great stories of what it was like on stage for the first time for many long time comics.

Thus, The Other Side took new meaning, metaphorically representing a career change from Insurance to Entertainment. In 2009, John founded PARALLELLOGRAM. Originating as an Art Gallery and Social Center in downtown Wilmington, NC, it's now a production studio and online audio visual media gallery, which you are currently looking at.
