The Origins of Wit & Humor - Official Trailer - Starring Joe Hursley and Broken Lizard's Steve Lemme

Official Trailer for our debut, feature length comedy entitled "The Origins of Wit & Humor". Winner of Best Comedy at the Philadelphia Independent Film Fest Winner of Best Actor (Joe Hursley) at the Hill Country Film Fest Logline: A comedy writer's need for approval leads him to a wonder elixir that bends his world into a surreal landscape of comedy tropes, which forces him to explore his own worth outside the writer's room. Synopsis: After the end of a long relationship, comedy writer Les Candalero (Joe Hursley; Accepted, Resident Evil Extinction, Fast & Furious) melts into self-doubt. He’ll try anything to move on, even a mail order elixir that makes you irresistibly funny. It works... too well, which casts doubts on the one thing he's let define him - his sense of humor. With the help of his best friend, Pops (Steve Lemme; Super Troopers, Beerfest), Les sets out to flush this aphrodisiac from his system. Along the way, surreality begins to blossom throughout his world and Les has to accept that his desperate need for approval was the real cause of this. Can he be funny and human at the same time? Can he be more? Is it too late for those questions? Does this hat look funny? http://www.OWHFilm.com for more info Written by Christian Gridelli & Hunter Norris Directed by Christian Gridelli Produced by: DimeStore Films and Shatterglass Films Starring Joe Hursley (Accepted, Resident Evil Extinction, Fast & Furious) Steve Lemme (Super Troopers, Beerfest, Club Dread) Karisa Bruin Grace McPhillips
