3 Still Standing
Directed by Robert Campos and Donna LoCicero

In the ‘70s and ‘80s, San Francisco was at the center of the comic world. Following the success of local stars Robin Williams and Dana Carvey, three comedians moved to San Francisco and quickly established themselves as part of the next big wave. What happened next is the subject of « 3 Still Standing, » which traces the rise—and stumble—of three Bay Area contenders: Will Durst, Larry Brown and Johnny Steele. Along the way, Robert Campos and Donna LoCicero’s enchanting and insightful film offers a different take on the Steve Allen maxim that Woody Allen made famous : « Comedy is tragedy plus time.»

Moderator: David L. Brown
David L. Brown is an Emmy Award-winning documentary filmmaker who has produced, written and directed over 80 productions and 14 broadcast documentaries.

Another documentary that Brown directed, “The Bridge So Far: A Suspense Story,” won two Emmys and featured comedian Will Durst, one of the comedians profiled in “3 Still Standing.”
