Friends of Film, Video and Arts is back with another information-crammed monthly meeting.

Funny Movie

Albuquerque Comedy Media & Entertainment (A.C.M.E.) is a brand-new nonprofit organization set up by a number of talented local comedians. The group hopes to create “an open community of passionate thought expression through the art of comedy” and to provide “performance and educational opportunities for a variety of ages and backgrounds.” The group is coming out to the community at a special fundraising event on Friday, Nov. 18. Beginning at 7 p.m. at the KiMo Theatre in Downtown, several of the comedians involved in A.C.M.E. will host a one-night-only movie screening in conjunction with Film!ABQ. The documentary I Am Comic will be shown. The film, written and directed by Jordan Brady (Waking Up in Reno, Dill Scallion) examines what it’s like to be a professional stand-up comic. Interviewees include Tim Allen, Dave Attell, Tom Arnold, Lewis Black, Louis C.K., Margaret Cho, Tommy Davidson, Phyllis Diller, Jeff Foxworthy, Jim Gaffigan, Janeane Garofalo, Greg Giraldo, Bobcat Goldthwait, Kathy Griffin, Chris Hardwick, Paul Rodriguez and more! The five founding members of A.C.M.E. (Sarah Kennedy, Sarah Mowrey, Jessica Osbourne, Joe Quesada and Rusty Rutherford) will be there to perform a little comedy before the film. Plus, there will be a live Skype Q & A with the filmmaker after the screening. Tickets are a mere $10 at the KiMo box office and will go toward helping A.C.M.E. establish its new performance space Downtown.
