Committee Filmmakers Collaborative.jpeg

A deep dive into the life of "The Committee", the radical San Francisco-based improvisational comedy revue that introduced the counterculture of the 1960s to mainstream America, pioneered an artform, and helped shape modern American satire. A documentary series featuring rarely seen vintage comedy and interviews with the cast, with Howard Hesseman, Larry Hankin, Carl Gottlieb, Garry Goodrow, Barbara Bosson and many many more.

Co-directors and co-writers Jamie Wright and Sam Shaw are longtime collaborators both as improvisors onstage and as producers and supporters of the San Francisco improv scene: Sam as co-founder of the SF Improv Festival and Jamie as its Executive Producer for the past 10 years. Jamie is also founder of the documentary's production company, Lekker Media. Director of Photography Justin Chin is a visual storyteller and the principal at Infinite Machine. He has been collaborating with Jamie on Lekker Media projects since 2011.
