Run With It

Comedy Special

RUN WITH IT

With the tragic and untimely passing of the legendary Civil Rights Activist/Comedian Dick Gregory a movement was sparked. Partly inspired by the great comedian’s actual words, but primarily the brain child of his extremely talented and hilarious nephew Mark Gregory, the “Run With It” comedy tour was born.

With respect to Mark's brand and legacy, Rebirth Films was able to produce something a bit more creative than a traditional comedy show. Before the stand up portion of the video, a mini documentary was created, exploring the lives, passions and relationship of both Mark and Dick. At the completion of the mini documentary/comedy show, it stands as a true commemoration of the passing of the torch, from one great comedian to another.
