Let’s Get Serious with Steve Mazan

Steve Mazan of Dying to Do LettermanDying to Do Letterman is a feature-length documentary that chronicles comedian Steve Mazan’s quest to perform stand-up on Late Show with David Letterman after being diagnosed with cancer in 2005.

The film screened on June 17 as part of the TBS Just for Laughs Chicago comedy festival and will be screening again this Thursday, June 30, 2011 at the Gene Siskel Film Center at 8:15pm.

I sat down with Mazan for a long conversation about the quality of light in San Francisco, mid-western senses of humor and not giving up on your dreams regardless of the odds.
