Warm Beer Lousy Food
Documentary, 50 min.
Directed by Dena Greenbaum
Warm Beer, Lousy Food is the untold story of America's first comedy club, Brooklyn's "Crazy Country Club" and its founder (and self-proclaimed nut) Lou Burdo. The film includes rare footage of the club throughout its nearly 50-year history and testimonials from the founder, staff, and patrons, breathing life back into a storied institution that, despite having been shuttered long ago, continues to live on for the many people who were forever changed by this wonderful and crazy place.
