Jason Alexander and Pamela Shaw Talk Lucky Stiff at FLIFF (Video)

The Cast of Lucky Stiff at the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival from Voice Media Group on Vimeo.

If you grew up in a household where required viewing included the Peter Sellers Pink Panther movies and Auntie Mame, then you'll be glued to the screen and giggling with delight watching Lucky Stiff.

Director Christopher Ashley, a veteran of the stage, decided to get cinematic with this quirky, goofy musical, complete catchy tunes and adorable illustrations. He created the comedic flick with a cast that starred the strong voices of Dominic Marsh and Nikki M. James and included the hilarious and outrageous hijinks of Jason Alexander and Pamela Shaw.

Lucky Stiff was the first musical to ever screen at the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival and last Friday was the movie's Florida premiere. We were fortunate enough to sit down with Ashley, Shaw, and Alexander and speak about what it really means to be a comedic actor and what the three are up to next.
