The Laughing Man (2021)

Presented by Films at Manship

Directed by: Zack Godshall

SYNOPSIS: The Laughing Man is a tragicomic portrait of part-time actor and occasional twin of Jesus Christ, Thomas Alan Williamson. Though known for his infectious laugh, Thomas has lived a life haunted by tragedy, mental illness, and estrangement. He’d like to visit his dying father back home in Texas, but Thomas faces homelessness in Louisiana and every day is a struggle to survive. A mosaic of verité encounters, interviews, photographs, first-person confessionals, phone calls, and hand-written journals, the film creates an intimate connection with a remarkable individual who is but one of the millions seeking shelter under our freeways and refuge in our hospitals.

All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket to attend performances. Please carefully consider whether a performance is appropriate for children before planning to attend.
