Synopsis

Comedic greats and social activists tell the story of one of comedy's most enigmatic and important figures: Barry Crimmins. In the '70s and '80s, the beer-swilling, politically outspoken and whip-smart comic fostered the talents of the next generation of standup comedians. But beneath Crimmins' gruff, hard-drinking, curmudgeonly persona lay an undercurrent of rage stemming from his long-suppressed and horrific abuse as a child - a rage that eventually found its way out of the comedy clubs and television shows and into the political arena.
