It's no coincidence that some of the most cutting edge comics of this generation came out of the same city, at the same time. The Boston gold rush of the late 70s and early 80s was considered by many as the flashpoint of the biggest national stand-up explosion ever. A scene boiling over with comedians possessed with that precarious blend of originality, pure desire, and good old fashioned desperation. Follow 20 year comedy veteran Fran Solomita as he takes a revealing journey back to this extraordinary time. Features Steven Wright, Denis Leary, Janeane Garofalo, Paula Poundstone, Colin Quinn and Bobcat Goldwait.
