Comedy is a tough business, especially when you don’t try very hard. On July 11th, DJ Zombo will celebrate some unambitious underdogs when he premieres his film Schmo Bizness at the Hollywood Theater.
The 70-minute documentary combines animation and live archival footage to tell the story of Those Generics, an Ohio comedy team that toured throughout the 1980s and 1990s. After 15 years on the road, numerous gigs, and radio and television appearances, the group called it quits. Now, 30 years later, Schmo Bizness captures their long-awaited reunion.
The Schmo Bizness premiere event will begin at 7 p.m. The evening also includes live comedy from Davon Magwood and Shannon Norman, live music, silent comedy shorts, and free beer from Deschutes Brewery. Tickets are $10.
