Told through a single stand-up comedy routine, John J Jones performs to an unforgiving audience. As he loses their interest, his body rebels against him, and the truth behind the one-liners leaks through the cracks. Car-crash comedy at its most compulsive.
Joseph Pierce is a regular collaborator with 59 Productions, who produced his multi award-winning short animation "A Family Portrait", and new commission "The Pub".
Stand Up was awarded Best Animation in the Rushes Soho Short Film Festival, and Best British Film in the London Animation Festival.
