“Uncle Fun: You’re The One” Documentary ScreeningChicago Filmmakers - 5720 N. Ridge Ave (enter from Hollywood) - $8.00
I have an original song and some other music bits in this documentary by Laura Force Scruggs about the iconic late Chicago novelty and toy store and the magic man behind it, which everyone near Chicago should go see.
The running time is exactly one hour. There will also be a Q & A after each screening with Laura Force Scruggs, Uncle Fun, and Executive Producer and Sound Editor Jake Scruggs which will be recorded on their “Are You Famous, Yet?” podcast.
“The Captain returns taking on mutants, corporations, aliens, and student loans. … Captain Ambivalent’s catchy songs and clever insights will have you saying to yourself ‘oh yeah, that’s right’ before he moves on to the next part of his nerdy tale. A crowd-pleaser with an accordion, this show is definitely worth seeing…” – Elgin Walkabout
“… a rollicking, entertaining hour full of lots of great music and lots of family-friendly fun.” – Plays With John and Wendy Blog
“The show is a tongue-in-cheek, satirical look at the American Landscape since we all fell asleep one night in 2016 and awakened in disbelief, confusion, and despair…The Show isn’t about the costume, the accordion (very well-played), vocals, or accompanying sound track and visuals. It’s about the lyrics. And that’s why you should go and listen to this show.” – IndyFringe Talks Blog
Available in 30 min, 50 min, and 75 min (two act) versions.
