Episode 36 - "Ishtar: 30 Years Hot Fudge Love"
THE EPISODE YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR! WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR! The episode that may make you change your name to Carol. (Ishtar reference)
We've been teasing you on IG and Twitter with #bringbackishtar for months now. (Go ahead, google that hashtag.) Not only are Chuck and I talking about this too hip for the room comedy; we got to interview a big shot filmmaker! "Waiting For Ishtar" is a new documentary (available December 15, 2017 on VIMEO On Demand). It was created by filmmakers John Mitchell and Jonathan Crombie. Chuck and I were lucky to interview John Mitchell about our mutual love of the misunderstood film "Ishtar". John's documentary is about a quest; a quest to find a sole video cassette copy of Ishtar, and to uncover why there was a waiting list of 47 people to see it. While making the movie, John and Jonathan got a lot more than they dreamed. They were the "Rogers and Clark" (Ishtar reference) of documentaries. They were the dreamers that didn't give up until they achieved their goal. Their simple documentary became an adventure. Oh, and they got to interview, Charles Grodin, Carol Kane, and Paul Williams.
Enough about John and Jonathon... Chuck and I got to talk ISHTAR! With a kindred soul, another wise human being that "gets" the humor, loves the songs, and has always wondered why Ishtar got so maligned?
Ishtar is 30 years old, and it's overdue for a sequel. Step aside Star Wars! We hope you enjoy this interview with John Mitchell. It was a pleasure having him on the show.
