Stand-Up or Die

    By

    Originally part of the UK alternative comedy scene, Andy de la Tour spent many years on the circuit, performing with the likes of Rik Mayall, Ben Elton, Alexei Sayle and French and Saunders. After a 20-year break from stand-up he returned to New York City, the genre's spiritual home, to start all over again in the back-rooms and dive bars of the Big Apple.This is one man's journey through New York's underground comedy scene. From  Rubber Bullets' in lower Manhattan to the  Hot Tub' in Brooklyn, Andy takes the stand. Can he make them laugh? Will New Yorkers stomach his outsider's take on Obama, the Tea Party and 9/11? Andy's a long way from home and dying is not an option.
