Woodstock Community Center

THE MITCH SHOW is a retrospective of comedic short films spanning the comedic oeuvre of not-dead filmmaker Mitchell Rose. There's a high probability that the program will also include several comedic pieces that use audience participation.

Prior to becoming a filmmaker, Mitchell Rose was a New York-based performance artist specializing in comedic work. The New York Times called him: "A rare and wonderful talent... Woody Allen, with more than a dash of Abbie Hoffman thrown in." The Washington Post wrote that his work was "in the tradition of Chaplin, Keaton, and Tati--funny and sad and more than the sum of both."

Eventually he was drawn more to visual media and chose to become a filmmaker, entering The American Film Institute as a Directing Fellow. Since A.F.I., his films have won forty-eight film festival awards and are screened around the world on television and in locations as diverse as the Getty Museum and the CBS JumboVision in Times Square.

Mr. Rose is the former housemate of Paris Hilton. Let the art begin.
