KDMG acquires distribution rights to ‘The Comedy Club’


Kaczmarek Digital Media Group has secured North American rights to David Schendel’s “The Comedy Club”. The comedy documentary dives deep into Cobb's Comedy Club in San Francisco and its defiant owner Tom Sawyer and crew of comedians who attempt to rebuild it after a fire destroys it. Hoping to revive the struggling local breeding ground for young comedians, Cobb's could not be equaled. Jim Carrey, Dana Carvey, Paula Poundstone, Bob Saget, Ellen DeGeneres, Bobcat Goldthwait, Bill Maher, Kevin Pollak and more developed at this small club. David C. Schendel (Yank Tanks, 2003) documents the roller coaster ride to re-open the legendary independent venue and keep it open against all odds.

The Comedy Club which opens November 1st on multiple Cable On Demand and streaming platforms will include a limited theatrical release in NYC at Film Noir Cinema in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The film features many of the world’s top comedians including Kevin Pollak, Bobcat Goldthwait, Bill Maher, Dana Carvey, Bob Saget, Kevin Nealon, George Wallace, W. Kamau Bell, Paula Poundstone, and many more. 

The deal was negotiated by Hewes Pictures Head of Sales and Acquisitions Princeton Holt, CEO of KMDG Kyle Kaczmarek, and VP of Sales and Acquisitions at KMDG Sherry Sparks.
