Joyful Mother’s Day!
You could not be equipped to hug your mother due to the fact of the coronavirus crisis, but that does not imply you can not giggle with her — from at the very least six feet away.
Tonight, Comedy Central will air “Call Your Mom,” a documentary about mothers and their comedian children from Oscar-nominated filmmakers Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady (“Jesus Camp,” “Freakonomics: The Movie”).
The documentary will feature comedy clips and interviews with comedian superstars Louie Anderson, Awkwafina, Jimmy Carr, Bridget Everett, Fortune Feimster, Rachel Feinstein, Judah Friedlander, Jim Gaffigan, Judy Gold, Jen Kirkman, Jo Koy, Bobby Lee, the Lucas Brothers, Norm Macdonald, Jim Norton, Tig Notaro, Yvonne Orji, Kristen Schaal, David Spade and Roy Wood Jr.
“Comedy Central is pretty proud to existing this documentary to the entire world,” said Sarah Babineau, head of Comedy Central Material and Resourceful Enterprises, in a press launch. “Heidi and Rachel have produced a interesting and layered glance at how the interactions amongst comedians and their mothers condition their craft. It’s a hilarious, insightful get on the indelible mark that our mothers go away on us all.”
“Call Your Mother” will air tonight at ten p.m. Pacific on Comedy Central.
