Call Me Lucky details the life of stand-up comedian and activist Barry Crimmins, from his roots in upstate New York to his work as a political satirist and advocate.
Filming began in January 2014 in Boston and Crimmins' home in upstate New York. Principal photography wrapped in August 2014.
The film premiered on January 7th, 2015 at the Sundance Film Festival in the Documentary Competition program. It went on to play over a dozen festivals around the US and was released theatrically on August 7, 2015.
AV Club critic Mike D'Angelo wrote "If it accomplishes nothing else, the new documentary Call Me Lucky should bring some welcome attention to a man who's been under the radar for the past few decades, mostly by his own design." Stephen Holden of the New York Times wrote "An earnest homage that also honors Mr. Crimmins's crusade to drive child pornography off the Internet."
