Funny Pains follows stand-up comedian Wendi Starling, whose career, working process and life are closely examined in the film, as she navigates one of the entertainment’s toughest, most competitive professions — all during the height of the #MeToo movement, feminism, and the infiltration of stand-up comedy by the politically correct. Above all else, the film delves into serious issues of sexual assault and mental health, with Starling revealing her not-so-private personal traumas.

“We are very proud and honored to release Funny Pains and help share Wendi’s brave narrative with the world. Wendi’s story is one of risk and determination, ironically the very essence of great independent cinema. We are confident that you will fall in love with Wendi and be inspired by her bold journey as much as we were. And above all else, we promise you that you will LAUGH!” said Mat Levy, Passion River’s Director of Sales and Acquisitions.

Director Jorgy Cruz added, “Funny Pains is a two-part love letter to NYC and to stand-up comedy; both which I love, respect and owe a lot to. Having the support and representation of the superb team at Hewes Pictures made all the difference. They’re one of the main reasons why we are now ready to share our movie with the world on all platforms. I’m grateful and humble.”

Also featured in the documentary are Nikki Glaser (Bangin’), Jim Norton (Mouthful of Shame), and other comedians including Bonnie McFarlane, Andrew Shultz, Yamaneika Saunders, Krystyna Hutchinson, Rich Vos, and Mehran Khaghani, who also have specials released on Netflix, Comedy Central, YouTube, and other platforms, rounding out an elite cast of working comics.

Funny Pains is expected to release in 2020.
