Dustin Sussman and Aaron Rosenbloom
DOC NYC 2017
Hollywood Reel Independent
A profile of an unheralded comedy world everyman.
The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Rick Crom, comedy’s everyman, was the long-running emcee at the Comedy Cellar in New York City’s Greenwich Village. The piano-playing funnyman integrated his talent for musical theater into his act, while artfully shifting the way comedians discuss homosexuality in their routines. A gentleman and the quintessential host, Rick is well-loved amongst his fellow comedians Ray Romano, Colin Quinn, Sarah Silverman, Wanda Sykes, and more who appear in this funny portrait to give Rick his due, and to bust his chops as only comedians can.
