"I was born a poor black child..."

Steve Martin stars as Navin R. Johnson, the loveable and dim adopted son of a poor black sharecropper family. Johnson decides to go out on his own to discover his true identity and make his way in the world, but comes across several ridiculous and hilarious hurdles along the way in this classic rags-to-riches story.

After THE JERK released and Steve Martin first hit the silver screen in this powerfully hilarious debut, critics had no problem reminding audiences that he was the "arrow-in-the-head-guy" from Saturday Night Live, but, it quickly became apparent that his comedic genius translated to any screen, stage, or platform he happened to be on. Now often considered to be one of the funniest movies of all time, this movie is a striking balance of intelligent wit and outright oddball stupidity, and we can't wait to watch it again with you!

Thanks to JFL42, this screening will be preceded by a side-splitting stand-up act by K Trevor Wilson, self described as the Man-Mountain of Comedy and hosted by the very funny Amanda Brooke Perrin. Join us every month for a new comedy feature and stand-up pairing!
