Outstanding: A Comedy Revolution

Director: Page Hurwitz

Producers: Page Hurwitz, Wanda Sykes

Intended to complement Netflix’s comedy special “Stand Out: An LGBTQ+ Celebration,” “Outstanding” will combine original performances, interviews, archival materials and backstage vérité footage to explore themes like comedy as activism, diversity in stand-up, new queer culture and mainstreaming the alternative. The film focuses on the importance of LGBTQ stand-up as an instrument for social progress over the past five decades, changing the world one joke at a time.
