A Tough Act To Follow

Click here to view the film's trailer

"A Tough Act To Follow" is a documentary film that follows some of the experiences of Sampson McCormick, (Sampson), a touring, black, LGBT stand-up comic and writer, who navigates the already difficult business, as well as many of the added hurdles and setbacks with lots of humor, a few tears, heartfelt honesty and admirable determination. Through humor as well as serious inquiry, it focuses on the homophobia, sexism and sometimes racism and other challenges that affect the level of visibility of diversity in comedy houses, television, on stages and opportunities for minority artists in the entertainment business. 
 
The film, is produced by Sampson, co-produced by Emmy Award winning producer Todd Clark (The DC Place Films) and featuring interviews from notable television, film, stage and film stars including Darryl Stephens (Noah’s Arc, Boy Culture), Adele Givens (Def Comedy Jam, Queens of Comedy), and others. Soundtrack provided by LGBT hip hop artists Bry’Nt, Kaoz, Tori Fixx, Marck Angel, Tim’m West, Nhojj and folk singer Toshi Reagon.
