Joy RideUnited States, 2021 : Canadian Premiere
Frenemies and veteran comedians Dana Gould (THE SIMPSONS) and Bobcat Goldthwait (WORLD’S GREATEST DAD, JIMMY KIMMEL), journey through the American South on their latest tour.
Having learned very little from a near-fatal car accident on the first night of filming, the two press on and hit the road with cameras in tow. The documentary captures the duo as they carefully navigate highways and their decades-old contentious friendship; reflecting upon their careers and relationship with comedy.
