11/17 Waiting for Guffman
WAITING FOR GUFFMAN is a mockumentary, co-written and directed by Christopher Guest that was released in 1997. An aspiring director and the marginally talented amateur cast of a hokey small-town Missouri musical production go overboard when they learn that someone from Broadway will be in attendance. The title of the film is a reference to the Samuel Beckett play, “Waiting for Godot.” As in the other mockumentaries created by Guest, the majority of the dialogue is improvised.
