DOCTOR DETROIT: Dan Aykroyd’s Cult Classic To Receive April Blu-ray Release!

He’s making the world safe…for insanity. On April 24, 2018, the cult comedy Doctor Detroit comes to Blu-ray for the first time, courtesy Shout Select.

Clifford Skridlow’s newest profession is the oldest profession in Doctor Detroit, a chaotic comedy starring the one and only Dan Aykroyd.

When fast-talking pimp Smooth Walker (Howard Hesseman, WKRP In Cincinnati) finds himself in hot water with Chicago crime boss Mom (Kate Murtagh), he claims that there’s a new player in the game: Doctor Detroit, a cat who’s badder than bad … and completely fictitious. In need of a patsy until the heat dies down, Smooth hits paydirt with mild-mannered professor Clifford Skridlow (Aykroyd) — and promptly skips town, leaving his bevy of sexy “employees” in Clifford’s hapless hands. Charmed by the ladies and spurred by his dedication to chivalry, Clifford agrees to become their protector and ally, transforming himself from a power-walking professor to a heroic hustler … and throwing down the gauntlet to save his college from financial ruin and the four damsels from the wrath of Mom!

Special Features:

Review: ‘I Am Chris Farley’ Offers An Inside Look At The Making of A Comedic Force

Review: ‘I Am Chris Farley’ Offers An Inside Look At The Making of A Comedic Force

A must see documentary!

A must see documentary!

Although it has been almost 20 years since the untimely passing of “SNL’ star and unbridled comedic force known as Chris Farley. Even two decades removed, his star shines as brightly as ever. ‘I Am Chris Farley’ is the first feature-length documentary film focusing on the life of the “infuriatingly talented” star (to quote the great Loren Michaels). The documentary, directed by Brent Hodge, is a powerful and moving tribute to a legend from the people who knew him best.

The film serves as a long overdue love letter friends and family, who offer a heartbreakingly close look at Farley’s rise from troublemaking youth to comedy superstar. It’s a love letter that focuses on the amazing talent of an artist, the impression her left on those he impacted in his short time on Earth and the demons he struggled with along the way. ‘I Am Chris Farley’ features raw, emotionally charged interviews with those who knew him best. The interviews range from Kevin Farley, David Spade, Dan Aykroyd, Bob Odenkirk, Bob Saget, Christina Applegate, Adam Sandler, Molly Shannon, Bo Derek, Mike Myers and many more. Those emotional moments are perfectly balanced with sidesplittingly hilarious moments they shared during their time together.

In addition to the emotional interviews, the film intertwines photo from the comedians childhood and never-before-released footage shows Farley doing his famous physical comedy. One of the most notable aspects of the film is the inside look at how some of Farley’s most famous characters came to life. This revealing look into Farley’s past shows he was much more than just “the funny fat guy,” but rather a complex artist who would go to any length to keep the laughter going. In short, this masterfully crafted documentary provides a unique glimpse inside the life of a star who was taken from us far too soon.

‘I Am Chris Farley’ will premiere on Spike on August 10th and be released on VOD and DVD on August 11th.

Trailer and Release Date For ‘I Am Chris Farley’ Documentary Unveiled

Trailer and Release Date For ‘I Am Chris Farley’ Documentary Unveiled

A must see documentary!

A must see documentary!

Brent Hodge’s and Derik Murray’s I AM CHRIS FARLEY, the definitive biographical film about the late comedy star featuring co-stars and colleagues such as Christina Applegate, Dan Aykroyd, Mike Myers, Adam Sandler, Molly Shannon, David Spade, and many others, will open theatrically New York and Los Angeles on July 31st, 2015. The film will be available nationwide on VOD and across all digital platforms on August 11th, following it’s airing on Spike TV!

The film comes from the directors of ‘A Brony Tale,’ ‘I Am Evel Knievel,’ and the upcoming ‘Johnny Cash – American Rebel.’ I AM CHRIS FARLEY tells Chris Farley’s story, from his early days in Madison, Wisconsin and at Marquette University, through his work at the legendary club Second City to his rapid rise to the top of the comedy world on “Saturday Night Live” and in hit films like Tommy Boy and Black Sheep.

Sharing insights into the beloved funnyman are such co-stars and colleagues as Christina Applegate, Tom Arnold, Dan Aykroyd, Bo Derek, Pat Finn, Jon Lovitz, Lorne Michaels, Jay Mohr, Mike Myers, Bob Odenkirk, Bob Saget, Adam Sandler, Will Sasso, Molly Shannon, David Spade, Brian Stack, and Fred Wolf. The filmmakers also speak to Farley’s four siblings, including his brother Kevin, a comedian and actor, and his brother Tom Jr., who wrote the biography “The Chris Farley Show: A Biography in Three Acts.”

With the full cooperation and participation of the Farley family, I AM CHRIS FARLEY showcases the performer’s most memorable characters and skits from television and film, paired with iconic photographs, home movies, family snapshots and personal artifacts, to fully round out the story of this comedy legend – a bear of a man who nevertheless had remarkable grace and physicality. Clips from Farley’s most memorable performances fill the documentary, from his breathtaking Chippendales audition alongside Patrick Swayze, to his comically ill-fated salesman in Tommy Boy, to his diatribes as Matt Foley, the motivational speaker who “lives in a van down by the river!”

Farley lived his life full speed and committed to make everyone around him laugh out loud, and I Am Chris Farley will tell his hilarious, touching and wildly entertaining story for the first time ever.

I AM CHRIS FARLEY was executive produced by Paul Gertz (I Am Steve McQueen, I Am Bruce Lee), Kent Wingerak (I Am Steve McQueen, I Am Bruce Lee) and Robert Pirooz (I Am Steve McQueen, I Am Evel Knievel)

The Official Blues Brothers Revue To Hit The Road This Fall

The Official Blues Brothers Revue To Hit The Road This Fall

blues-brothers-2013

The Blues Brothers are what can only be described as the stuff of musical, comedic and cinematic legend. They have become an inextricable thread woven into the fabric of our culture and the images of Jake and Elwood are universally and instantaneously recognizable throughout this, and quite possibly other, solar systems.

A reverent replication of those irreverent days of yore, THE OFFICIAL BLUES BROTHERS REVUE is a live concert show that combines the comedy and hit songs from the original 1980 hit film as well as the five iconic albums released by John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd. Featuring Wayne Catania as Jake and Kieron Lafferty as Elwood, THE OFFICIAL BLUES BROTHERS REVUE and their eight-piece intercontinental rhythm & blues revue band pay homage to the humor, music and mayhem of the Blues Brothers and to Chicago’s rich musical history of blues, gospel and soul music.

Produced by Dan Aykroyd, Judith Belushi and original Blues Brothers musical director Paul Shaffer, THE OFFICIAL BLUES BROTHERS REVUE will be kicking off its fall run this Saturday, September 21 in Danville, KY.  The 31-date outing will then hit various cities throughout North Carolina, Virginia, New Jersey, Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota, Ohio, Michigan, Texas, California, Pennsylvania, New York, Maryland and Connecticut before wrapping Sunday, November 24 in Monroe Township, NJ.The tour will then resume with another 30 shows in 2014 starting January 16 and running through mid-April. See below for full tour schedule.

THE OFFICIAL BLUES BROTHERS REVUE features all the Blues Brothers classics including “Soul Man,” “Rubber Biscuit,” “Sweet Home Chicago,” “Rawhide” and “Gimme Some Lovin’” among many others. Fun for all-ages, the show has been hailed by the Chicago Sun-Times for its “infectious and unbridled energy…[that] blows the roof off” (Jeff Johnson).

As we head towards Halloween, we ain’t afraid of no ghosts, but just the same, we’re glad that everyone’s favorite paranormal eliminators are on the case.”
