Comedy Dynamics will release the documentary film The Laughter Life theatrically, running September 25th to October 24th in participating theaters nationwide. The film will be available to buy or rent October 23rd on iTunes, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Vimeo, DirecTV, Cox, Charter, Comcast Vudu, Dish, and many other cable and satellite providers.
The Laughter Life follows a week in the life of the young comedians who write and star in Studio C, a popular sketch comedy television show that has garnered over 1 billion views on YouTube. But theirs is not your typical comedy success story, as the cast and crew behind the program are practicing Mormons living in the deeply observant community of Provo, Utah. The Laughter Life introduces the viewer to a world few have visited and demonstrates the unifying power of comedy.
“It was a great privilege to spend time with the talented comedians of Studio C, documenting their unique process and deep connection with their fans. I’m very proud of this film and absolutely thrilled to be working with Comedy Dynamics to share it with comedy lovers everywhere,”said film director Juliet Werner.
The documentary, directed and produced by Juliet Werner (The Daily Show with Trevor Noah), originally premiered at the Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival in August of 2016, and also screened at the Dances With Films festival in Los Angeles in June of 2017, where it caught the attention of Comedy Dynamics.
“We’re ecstatic to be at the forefront of such a unique project,”said Brian Volk-Weiss, CEO of Comedy Dynamics.
