filmmaker's note
Back in 2010, I met comedy producer Paul Herzich and was given the opportunity to film an interview with Itwin Corey, a 96-year-old comedy legend. It was very rough footage that felt like a home movie. Five years later, I had a conversation with Paul. We discussed how Irwin was still alive, about to turn 102, and wondered if this footage might have any value. I began editing the footage, initially excepting to add more to it, but to my pleasant surprise, the 9-minute documentary short that emerged was strong enough to hold its own. The goal of this short is to educate people on the legacy of this unique and obscure comedy legend.
