A smart and poignant documentary, Phunny Business: A Black Comedy tells the story of All Jokes Aside, one of the most influential comedy clubs in the United States, which during its nine year run in Chicago became proving ground for some of the biggest names in comedy. In 1990, on a trip to Los Angeles Raymond Lambert, an MBA working in Chicago for entrepreneur Chris Gardner (The Pursuit of Happyness), visited The Improv on Mo’Bettah Mondays, the club’s black comedy showcase night.
