Talking with actor, comedian and “that guy you know from that thing” Fred Stoller about growing up in Brooklyn and his new podcast The Mild Adventures of Fred Stoller.
Fred Stoller is a stand-up comedian and actor you’ll instantly recognize. He’s appeared on Late Night With David Letterman and The Tonight Show, and has guest starred on countless sitcoms, establishing himself as TV’s go-to nebbish: most notably as Ray’s mopey cousin Gerard on Everybody Loves Raymond, Elaine’s forgetful date on Seinfeld, and Monica’s bossy co-worker on Friends. He’s appeared in the films Dumb and Dumber, Rebound and Little Man, among others. Fred & Vinnie, the indie feature he wrote and starred in, won the Audience award at The Austin Film Festival.
AoBFF co-founder Anthony DeVito asked Fred about his Brooklyn roots, his two books and his new podcast, ‘The Mild Adventures of Fred Stoller.’
Brooklyn comedy troupe skewers Hollywood whitewashing in their new Christian Bale epic parody "Slavery"
Today's the big day: the 87th annual Academy Awards. Perfect timing to share this Oscars® "For Your Consideration" video for Christian Bale's latest historical epic Slavery. According to Brooklyn-based sketch comedy troupe The Shorts Show, nobody but the mighty Welshman could properly tell the story of this tragic period in American history. Spoiler Alert: Bale is a slave.
The Art of Brooklyn asked The Shorts Show's creator Corey Scott Rutledge and director/writer/editor Nick Snow about making comedy videos, working as a team and why whitewashing in movies needs to be called out and mocked whenever possible. Read on for the interview and video!
It all started with a series of real voicemails left for Coney-Island-born filmmaker William D. Caballero by his grandfather. They congratulate, scold, and offer words of wisdom across a variety of topics ranging from birthdays to trips to Puerto Rico.
Will decided to turn these voicemails into a short film, and the beloved character of "Gran'pa" was born. We interviewed Will about his award-winning film, turning that film into a web series and his experiences at the Art of Brooklyn Film Festival.
