An inspiring, triumphant and wickedly funny portrait of one of comedy’s most enigmatic and important figures, Call Me Lucky tells the story of Barry Crimmins, a beer-swilling, politically outspoken and whip-smart comic whose efforts in the '70s and '80s fostered the talents of the next generation of stand-up comedians.

Featuring intimate interviews with both comedians and activists alike, director Bobcat Goldthwait’s (World’s Greatest Dad, God Bless America, Willow Creek) Call Me Lucky bravely tells Crimmins’ incredible story of transformation from a rage-fueled funnyman into an acclaimed proponent of justice who personified the healing power of comedy.
