See this film: Jimmy Tingle's American Dream @ the Brattle

Local icon Jimmy Tingle, one of the few bonafide practitioners of the great tradition of political comedy, now adds a film to his credits. Directed by Vincent Straggas, Jimmy Tingle's American Dream (2010) follows the funnyman as he seeks the meaning of the title phantasm, querying pundits such as Howard Zinn, Robert Altman, Willie Nelson, and his own mother, Frances. (A review is in "Film Strips," on page 40 of this week's issue.) A Q&A with Tingle will be conducted after the screening, followed by a live comic performance at the Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St, Harvard Square | Friday, October 7-Sunday, October 9 @ 7 pm (doors open at 6 pm) | $25 | 617.876.6837 or
