, independently produced by The Comedy Cartel writer Steve Mitchell and director Ben Plazzer, is an out-of-body comedy feature about a stand-up comic who has his body hijacked by a jealous heckler following an accidental death after a gig.
Shot on location in Melbourne, Australia, CJ Fortuna stars as 'The Heckler' along with Simon Mallory, Kate Jenkinson, Emily Taheny and notable Aussie comedy performers Tony Martin, Jeff Green, Dave Lawson and Scott Harrison.
The self-obsessed comedian, on the fast track to fame, must find a way to reclaim his body from the jealous, idiotic heckler before his career as a stand-up is ruined forever.
The Heckler is not an avant-garde artistic masterpiece that reinvents modern cinema, but test audiences have praised the film for being entertaining and, importantly for a comedy, funny.
A Q&A with the writer, director and the two lead actors will follow the screening.
