Shep Gordon, the 2017 Woodstock Film Festival Trailblazer honoree, is one of the most beloved and successful men in show business, and Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon is an entertaining and inspiring tribute to this unsung hero. Within the first few minutes of comedian Mike Myers' directorial debut, you'll find yourself enjoying getting to know this warm and congenial man, as the film reveals the history of his success – a mix of skill, personality and luck. At age 21, on his first night in Los Angeles, he fell in with Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, and with determination and sheer chutzpah his future was launched. A life filled with sex, drugs, women, and rock 'n roll (and immense good works and generosity), Supermensch chronicles Gordon's trajectory with amusing anecdotes told by friends, a Who's Who list of celebrities that includes Alice Cooper, Michael Douglas, Tom Arnold, and Sylvester Stallone, among others, along with the supermensch himself.
BIO: Mike Myers gained his comic footing in the Second City Comedy Troupe. He later gained success and fame as a central cast member of Saturday Night Live, creating such characters as Linda Richman and Sprockets, before going on to even greater success in Hollywood films such as Shrek, Wayne's World and the Austin Powers series.
