Dir. Barry Avrich (80min, Canada, 2013)
Americans have long depended on Canada for three things: oil, maple syrup and comedians. David Steinberg counts among Canada's biggest comedic exports. Born in Winnipeg, he attended Yeshiva in Chicago, before abandoning his studies to join the legendary Second City.
The film features priceless archival footage of his performances, including The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, and his trademark religious sermonettes, which stirred up quite a bit of controversy at the time. We also catch a glimpse of his outstanding directorial efforts, including Seinfeld, Mad About You, Golden Girls and Curb Your Enthusiasm.
