“The kind of road movie that relies less on incident than on the chemistry between the guys in the car.” – Hollywood Reporter
“Folk Hero & Funny Guy is an amiable road movie powered by great music. But it’s much more than just that.” – The Playlist
“Rises above cliché thanks to a sure-handed, thought-out script, and memorable performances.” – The Film Stage
Recently dumped by his fiancée and with a stagnating standup routine, aspiring comedian-slash-copywriter Paul (Alex Karpovsky) is stuck. The manager of the club where he performs suggests he take some time off to update his comedy material, and in waltzes his childhood friend Jason Black (Wyatt Russell), an acclaimed folk-rock musician about to embark on a solo acoustic tour of the east coast. Jason suggests Paul needs to get his mojo back-and he should start by opening for Jason on tour. They set off on the road together, picking up a new act (folk singer Bryn, played by Meredith Hagner) on the way. But when Jason reveals an ulterior motive behind the tour, rifts are exposed in their otherwise affable camaraderie. Folk Hero & Funny Guy is a music-infused spin on the road-trip buddy comedy.
