Golub docu-comedy set for DVD debut

March 8, 2010 - Andy Gray

Comedian Bob Golub checked in recently to say he has a DVD distributor for his docu-comedy "Dodo."

The movie evolved out of the one-man show created by the Sharon, Pa., native about his father, an alcoholic one-eye roofer nicknamed "Dodo." Golub's father physically abused his wife and was an emotionally distant parent. He showed his love for the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Pirates more than he did for his children, who grew up to become everything from businessmen to career criminals and drug addicts.

Golub, who did a stint in prison for selling drugs before finding his calling in performing, exposes his own emotional scars from childhood and talks about trying to break the cycle as a parent of three young sons.

Golub said the movie, which he screened in 2007 at the old Funny Farm Comedy Club in Liberty, will be released next month by the independent distributor Celebrity Video. Golub is hoping to book a couple of events in northeast Ohio/western Pennsylvania to promote the release of the film.

 

 

He said the shows would include standup comedy as well as a screening of the movie. Dates and locations will be announced soon.
