Somerville Voice Actor Andy Taylor narrates this hilarious short
In late 2017, Andy Taylor connected with director Joan Hathaway – who was working on a mockumentary-style satire profiling the career of wildly successful American horn player in 1950’s America. Enchanted by the steady hilarity of the script and the overall story’s pure absurdity, Andy leapt at the chance to be a part of the project.
His narration connects the dots of a wild ride portrayed by actors Marshall and Kathy LeShay Berenson. The short film made the global round of film festivals, earning recognition from Best Shorts, Global Shorts, London-Worldwide Comedy Film Festival, and Art all Night Trenton.
