FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Houston Arts and Media Producing Comedy Documentary

Houston, TX – September 5, 2006 – Houston Arts and Media has stepped up shooting in earnest on Stand Up Story, a documentary history of stand up comedy in Houston. The story is centered around the nationally famous Comedy Workshop Annex that flourished here from 1978 to 1990, producing scores of internationally known comedians.

Several interviews with comedy alumni from the club have already been shot by Dos Dogs Productions and Wildcatter Productions, and a short demo has been edited to debut at a HAM event on the evening of Sunday, September 10 at the Mucky Duck, 2425 Norfolk. A website dedicated to the project is also up and running at www.standupstory.com

The move to full production status coincides with a reunion of about twenty comedians from around the country, all of whom got their start at the Comedy Workshop Annex. That three day event will run from Thursday, September 14 through Saturday, September 16 at the Laff Spot Willowbrook.
