Kamal Ahmed became famous playing one half of The Jerky Boys, a duo completed by Johnny Brennan who released a number of popular prank call records throughout the 90s. In 2000, Kamal Ahmed bailed on the still-ongoing outfit, instead focusing on his acting and filmmaking career. His latest directorial effort is Laugh Killer Laugh, which puts an oddly unique and hilarious spin on the gangster genre. And we have an exclusive clip spotlighting some of the film's humor.
In Laugh Killer Laugh, popular character actor William Forsythe makes a rare turn as a leading man. He plays a jewel thief named Frank Stone, who is very deeply disturbed. He has been described as an anti-social milquetoast who finds no joy or humor in anything. Not until he awakens from a deep coma with a changed personality. Against his better judgement, he decided to take this new persona to the stage, becoming, perhaps, the first hit man comedian.
Laugh Killer Laugh is not your typical mobster flick as it's told from the perspective of the hitman and delves more into his psychosis as a social misfit. In this clip, you'll see William Forsythe like you've never seen him before...Hair down, relaxed, playing pranks and doing a bit of stand-up comedy. He is joined in the movie by Tom Sizemore and Artie Lange. ITN Distribution will release Laugh Killer Laugh in select theaters and on VOD April 24th. But all you Jerky Boys fans can get a first look right now. We even have a look at the trailer:
