A Stupid and Futile Gesture is the story of Doug Kenney, the creator of National Lampoon.
The new trailer features Martin Mull – as Modern Doug – noting that the actors playing several key roles don’t look much like the originals – in that dry, slightly nasty manner that Mull has perfected over decades of comedy genius.
A Stupid and Futile Gesture premieres on Netflix on Friday, January 26th.
A Futile and Stupid Gesture is the story of comedy wunderkind Doug Kenney, who co-created the National Lampoon, Caddyshack, and Animal House. Kenney was at the center of the 70’s comedy counter-culture which gave birth to Saturday Night Live and a whole generation’s way of looking at the world.
