Plot Sypnosis:

This revolutionary DIY parody film and hilarious reimagining of the classic autobiographical coming-of-age story follows an unconfident, closeted trans girl as she moves to Gotham City to make it big as a comedian by joining the cast of UCB Live - a government-sanctioned late night sketch show in a world where comedy has been outlawed. As mainstream success eludes our heroine, leading her to unite with a ragtag team of rejects, misfits, and a certain love interest named Mister J, "Joker the Harlequin" is born again as a confident (and psychotic) joker on a collision course with the city's fascist caped crusader. Vats of feminizing chemicals, sexy cartoon interludes, scarecrow psychiatrists, CGI Lorne Michaels, and psychedelic gender dysphoria all play supporting roles. Helmed by writer/director/editor/star Vera Drew and using her own life experiences as a basis for the film, 'The People's Joker' is a deeply personal journey that's as much documentary as it is parody.

'The People's Joker' features a superhero-sized cast of celebrated comedic talent in both voice and live action roles behind the vibrant kaleidoscope of characters that lampoon the iconic heroes and villains of the DC comics' world, featuring cameos from comedy multi-hyphenate Tim Heidecker ("Tim and Eric Awesome Show"), award-winning actor Bob Odenkirk (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul), Maria Bamford (Netflix's 'Big Mouth', Adult Swim's 'Teenage Euthanasia'), and Scott Aukerman ('Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis' co-creator and host of the 'Comedy Bang! Bang!' podcast), with Emmy nominee Vera Drew (“Who is America”), Lynn Downey (Amazon Prime Video's 'Daisy Jones & The Six'), Nathan Faustyn ('Saddled'), David Liebe Hart ("Tim and Eric Awesome Show), Robert Wuhl (Batman, "Arliss") and Kane Distler, in his film debut as Mister J.
