Gravitas Ventures has acquired the worldwide rights to the comedy “Folk Hero and Funny Guy,” starring Alex Karpovsky and Wyatt Russell.
The film premiered in April at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival and scored 100% “fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes. Jeff Grace made his feature directorial debut with a script he wrote about a successful singer-songwriter, played by Russell, who hatches a plan to help his friend (Karpovsky) by hiring him as his opening act on his solo tour while his friend has been struggling with a declining comedy career and broken love life.
