Description

Entry in the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival

From the author and director of A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints comes a clever satire about fame, consumerism, and reality TV


Meet Eddie Krumble. He’s a relatively happy guy. Content-ish. Fresh to Los Angeles, Eddie and his friend Chris Plork land their first gig: clapping as paid audience members for infomercials and sitcoms so heinous that tourists won’t even attend. Eddie spends long days clapping, laughing, and hissing–on cue, of course–and his life slowly takes shape as a relationship with Judy, a gas station attendant, begins to brew.

Suddenly it’s all turned on its head when Jay Leno, in one of his nightly rants, unveils two stills of Eddie as audience member for two different infomercials. Eddie is singled out as clapper-for-hire, causing his career to come to a halt, and Leno turns his discovery into a recurring segment on his show. “Who is THE CLAPPER?” takes the public by storm, and Eddie’s face appears on TVs and billboards throughout the nation.

An uproarious satire, Eddie Krumble Is the Clapper is sure to mark the beginning of Montiel’s long literary career in fiction.
