I Need You To Kill follows three American comics – Tom Segura, Chad Daniels and Pete Lee – on a six-show tour through three of the world’s newest stand-up comedy scenes: Hong Kong, Singapore and Macau. The film explores the anxieties and surprises of taking your act halfway around the world as well as giving a ground-floor glimpse into Asia’s newest growth industry – stand-up comedy.
The documentary was written, edited, directed and executive produced by J. Elvis Weinstein (Freaks and Geeks, Mystery Science Theater 3000) and produced by Ryan Brennan and executive produced by Louis Lee.
