The Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival will present the Florida premiere of "IAN HARVIE SUPERHERO," tonight at 7 30 pm at the Cinema Paradiso in Fort Lauderdale, at 501 SE 6th Street. Parking is free adjacent to the theater.
SFGN Publisher Norm Kent will introduce special guest Ian Harvie and the documentary. It was produced by the acclaimed artist, Margaret Cho, and directed by Liam Kyle Sullivan. The 71 minute film is sponsored by the South Florida Pride Wind Ensemble.
Ian Harvie’s debut stand-up comedy concert film, Superhero, is the culmination of his very personal journey of having been born a girl and later becoming a self-made man. It’s Ian’s facile sense of ease, not just his gender-bending presence that makes his humor groundbreaking; and has lead him to make history on more than one occasion.
It’s these very qualities that attracted the notorious Margaret Cho to publicly rave about Ian’s work and have him as her opening act for years. Ian is ‘quite possibly the most unique comic in the country’ says Frontiers Magazine and yet his jokes strike the core of all shared human experiences.
Liam Kyle Sullivan is the director/performer behind LiamShow.com, a collection of funny short films created by and starring Liam. In late 2006, Liam's musical comedy video "Shoes" went viral on YouTube, spawning hundreds of fan remakes and launching Liam's character Kelly into internet stardom.. As of this writing, Shoes on YouTube has received over 41 million views.
