Doing anything for the first time isn’t easy unless your name is Bo Jackson, which is why it sounds totally crazy that Mark Myers decided the make his first film about trying stand-up comedy for the first time all while he was expecting his first child. The film is called Delivery and it’s not just about Mark, but four guys – three 20- and 30-somethings and a 71 year-old Dutch man – who embark on a mission to try and overcome their biggest collective fear: the fear of public speaking. To make it more interesting, they decide to tackle this phobia in the form of stand-up. Joining Mark on the journey is:

Shane, a seemingly extroverted funny guy, admits his struggle with anxiety and fear of failure.

Bert, a 71 year-old Dutch guy who’s seen and done it all, has an unprecedented confidence – thinking stand-up will be a piece of cake.

Sean learns his estranged father is dying of cancer after agreeing to the challenge. During his countdown to taking the stand-up stage, he’s simultaneously getting to know his father during his final months.

Amidst the chaos of their personal situations, the four take comedy classes, crash Montreal’s Just for Laughs comedy festival, interview world renowned comedians and spend sleepless nights penning punch lines. 

The film opens in Toronto at The Carlton on September 26 and on VOD on September 30. Check it out!
