On Stage at the Backdoor
Is East Dallas the secret center of the known comedy universe? This is the thesis of two green extra-terrestrials in this program, which examines one night in the life of local stand-up comedians. Combining performances, interviews, and behind-the-scenes footage, producer Linda Stogner has crafted a light-hearted foray into the world of Dallas’ own Backdoor Comedy Club. A stand-up comedienne herself, Stogner uses her craft and connections to figure out what makes stand-up comedians click as she explores how they got started, their influences, their relationship with the audience, and why they continue to do it.
