Today’s Guest: Filmmaker Jordan Brady, “I Am Battle Comic,” “I Am Road Comic,” “I Am Comic”
Watch this exclusive Mr. Media interview with Jordan Brady by clicking on the video player above!
Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience full of stand-up comedians who love Jordan Brady’s documentaries but think he should leave the costuming — and joke-telling — to them … in the NEW new media capital of the world… St. Petersburg, Florida!
At some point, I assume we’re going to get a documentary titled “I Am Jordan Brady, Comic.”
Brady, a sometime comic, has made several documentary films over the last decade following standup comedians in their lives on and off the stage. These include I Am Comic, I Am Road Comic, and his latest, I Am Battle Comic.
In the new film, Brady is once more behind the camera and occasionally in front of it, this time going on tour with comedians entertaining American troops in live battle zones overseas.
JORDAN BRADY podcast excerpt: “The comedians are in the barracks, in the military planes. At any moment it could be, ‘Get up! We can’t tell you where we’re going, but…’ And the next thing you know there are camels and people with guns and you just do your act.”
Battle Comic shares the jokes told but also the motivation that causes a comic to leave home to tell jokes in less than ideal situations bringing humor to men and women who are protecting American freedoms and beliefs.
The tour company includes Jeff Capri, Bob Kubota, Don Barnhart, and Slade Ham. Also interviewed are George Lopez, Jennifer Rawlings, Tammy Pescatelli, Wayne Federman, and Dave Attell.
This is Jordan’s third time as a guest on the show.
