“I AM BATTLE COMIC” follows comedians Slade Ham, Bob Kubota, Jeff Capri and Don Barnhart as they tour various U.S. Military stations in Afghanistan, Kuwait and Iraq. The documentary also includes interviews with comedians George Lopez, George Wallace, Dave Attell and Wayne Federman. Criticallyacclaimed producer, writer, actor and director, Judd Apatow, calls the documentary “an excellent heartfelt film that pays tribute to our troops…and the comedians who travel the world to make them laugh.”
“It means so much to our service members and their families that these comedians would deploy their talents to the front lines to give those serving a much-needed laugh,” said Liz Larsen, Volunteer and Community Outreach Senior Manager for the NMFA. “Furthermore, we couldn’t be more grateful for the film’s generous donation to our organization and military families!”
