Comedy comes in all shapes and sizes and some can be...a little shitty? Well at least when we're referencing the Sklar Brothers' new documentary Poop Talk. Cinelinx had the change to speak to the brothers about their upcoming film. The documentary revolves around exactly that: poop. Randy and Jason Sklar interviewed over 50 comedians and comedic actors about the topic, including themselves. Those familiar with the Sklar brothers comedy may be curious as to why they decided to do a fecal-centric documentary because they're not known for their blue (or should we say brown?) humor. Their pal, writer/director of the film, Aaron N. Feldman, proposed the idea to them and they had to think about it. “We had our own reservations,” explained Randy Sklar, “we thought about it then went back to him and said here's the movie we want to make – smart, honest discussion with funny friends...mixed in with scientists that give the information and we make a funny, smart, high brow – as much as we can – documentary about a difficult, taboo subject.” So Poop Talk was born.
We sat down with stand up comedian Gabriel Iglesias to discuss his new film The Fluffy Movie and why it's different that what you're used to. Iglesias is a comic for everyone -- young and old, latino and caucasian, parent or single -- and after viewing the film you'll find out why.
It's hard to write an entire review for every Before Watchmen title coming out once a week. To some it may seem ridiculous. How can someone not keep up with one comic book a week? That's the problem. I keep up with several titles and review movies as well. As much as I would love to devote an article to every title in the prequel series, I just don't have enough hours in the day.
Issue #2 of Before Watchmen: Comedian keeps the ball rolling for the prequel series. It seems much of the controversy surrounding the books has been put to bed. Either comic enthusiasts came to grips with the fact they're going to continue to happen no matter what is said or readers gave them a chance and liked the experience. Most of the people I've talked to are enjoying all the titles in the series.
