The Shortest Distance
For standup comedians in Dublin, laughter is a drug, and they are all addicts. The Shortest Distance explores why the unifying aspect of laughter is often the only reward in the Irish comedy scene.
This is my first film as completed for my Master’s in Film Studies from Trinity College Dublin. I learned so much making it, and, most importantly, it’s how I decided this is what I want to do with my life. Thank you to everyone who made it possible.
