A Comedy Gem
9 August 2001 | by (Denton, USA) – See all my reviews

Chris Elliot dons his "annoying guy" persona once again, this time as a wanna-be thespian attempting to re-create the life and times of FDR on the stage of a local community theater. And he's not going to let cheap production values, an uninterested audience, or mean-spirited stagehands get in his way. He also wasn't too interested in the factual events of FDR's life while writing his biographical one man show.

This show is an excellent showcase of Chris Elliot's wonderfully imaginative comedy and it really is a shame this video isn't more widely available. There are some real belly laughs here. Elliot's father also has a brief, but funny cameo. If you ever come across this, do yourself a favor and WATCH IT! It's a genuine comedy gem.
