Next in the Hub LA line-up of social good film screenings: first time director David Meyer's You Laugh But It's True.
South African comedian Trevor Noah uses his experiences as the child of a racially mixed couple during Apartheid--a time when interracial relationships were forbidden--as the lens for his sidesplitting comedy. In this intimate portrait, we meet an anxious Trevor as he is about to step onto the stage for his first ever one-man show.
Trevor faces a multitude of challenges: an underdeveloped comedy scene, criticism from other comics, lingering racial tension, and a shocking family tragedy. They pose a serious threat to the success of the show and to Trevor's dream of performing on the global stage.
Comedian Baratunde Thurston (author How to Be Black, co-founder Cultivated Wit, formerly of The Onion) will interview David Meyer after the screening and moderate a Q&A.
