Hilarious video by Comedian and podcast king Adam Corolla as he launches a crowd funding campaign of $1 million for his new movie project ROAD HARD – and he’s almost halfway there. A $2500 contribution lands you a part in the movie.
“My fans are so loyal and have supported all my other projects – the podcast, my books, and my line of booze, Mangria. I couldn’t imagine making a movie without enlisting them,” said Carolla. “I really want to do this outside of the Hollywood system…”
Carolla writes, directs and stars in the film about the journey of a former standup-turned-sitcom-star who, after the cancellation of his show and a divorce, is forced to go back on the road and perform at the dumpy clubs he played on the way up. In between gigs, he has long days on the road and longer nights in hotels wrestling with the fact that his best days may be behind him, and the question of whether to stay in the game at all. The film is co-written and co-directed by Carolla and long-time collaborator Kevin Hench (THE HAMMER).
Some of the talented people who plan to appear in Carolla’s ROAD HARD movie include Illeana Douglas, Diane Farr, David Alan Grier, and Larry Miller. To learn more about Adam Carolla’s FundAnything Campaign visit: http://fundanything.com/adamcarolla.
Donald Trump is a partner and spokesperson of the FundAnything.com platform, which is explicitly aimed at bringing celebrities into the business. Carolla was recruited to post his movie project on the site by using the Trump connection. According to Liz Gannes at AllthingsD.com, FundAnything founder Bill Zanker said “What I’m trying to do is bring crowdfunding away from the Brooklyn hipsters and bring it to the masses.”
