For the past 40 years, a group of comedy writers and directors has gathered every other Wednesday for lunch - and other nourishment. The members and their meeting places have changed occasionally, but their friendship and humor persist. Lunch describes more than a single meal. At each, their perceptive comments are sharp and brilliant. But their meetings mean more to them than affable, professional companionship; rather, a need to keep wit and wisdom alive and well. These are the fabled guys that made America funny. This is the feature length documentary LUNCH, which follows an earlier (2007), experimental Short by the same title, but with other cast members. Written by Donna Kanter, Writer/Producer/Director

Inventors of comedy meet for lunch
19 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

These old guys are a lot like my grandpa, they meet up together at the same place for lunch once a week, and they talk. They converse about current topics, family, and how they are being left behind by new trends in culture. The big difference however is that they are not farmers, they are basically the inventors of comedy. I wish there was a diner near by full of old funny guys like these, I would go there all of the time. I am a huge fan of comedy, and it was really quite fascinating learning a lot of behind the scenes information about some of my favorite films and television shows. Hearing these guys talk about there glory days is quite compelling, because though they may be past tier primes, they still continue to do what they love and are still honing and perfecting their craft.
