Filmed during their co-headlining comedy tour, “Joy Ride” follows frenemies and veteran comedians Bobcat Goldthwait (Scrooged, Call Me Lucky) and Dana Gould (The Simpsons, Stan Against Evil) who, having learned very little from their near-fatal car accident, get back on the road together and journey throughout the American South. The documentary captures the duo onstage and off as they carefully navigate highways and their decades-old contentious friendship, reflecting upon their careers and relationship with comedy.
Prior to the October 29th release of “Joy Ride”, the film will make its World Premiere on Saturday, September 25th in Austin, TX, with a screening at Moontower Comedy Festival. Bobcat and Dana will be in attendance to introduce the film and also do a post-screening Q&A with the audience. Event info & tickets: https://www.austintheatre.org/moontower-comedy/shows/joy-ride/
