Thanks to your love and support, SHOWGALS has been funded via Kickstarter! With just two hours to spare, we crossed our goal – and then proceeded to blow past it with the remaining time!
Kicking yourself for missing our Kickstarter? Well, here's a Kickstopper™ for you! You can now support us through The Film Collaborative, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing programs and services for independent filmmakers. All donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law! AHH!
SHOWGALS is a feature-length documentary that tells the story of Tight & Nerdy, the world’s first burlesque troupe devoted to “Weird Al” Yankovic.
As we follow this group of Weird Al super-fans on what just might be their final tour, we learn that Tight & Nerdy's "Al-Stravaganza" is more than just a comedy show - It's a story of finding your place in a chaotic world and redefining what it means to 'belong.'
With themes of female empowerment, gender inequality and body positivity, this is a film aimed squarely at those of us who have ever felt powerless, lonely or bullied simply because we are unable to hide that we‘re different. And it's all wrapped up in big personalities, over-the-top costumes, and unforgettable performances set to some of Weird Al’s most amazing tunes.

Since we don't have a trailer (you know, because we don't have a movie yet) we'd like to show you the sizzle reel (essentially a proof of concept) that we used to pitch this around town - featuring an awesome version of "Perform This Way" by Summer Woods!
Co-Director Jonathan spewed forth this gem on a bonus episode of The Beer'd Al Podcast. Co-Director Jeff was entertained, as was host Lauren. Or she was drunk. We aren't sure.
Pickles Kintaro chats with Dave & Ethan (and co-director Jeff!) on a pretty stinkin' majestic episode of their podcast!
BEHOLD: Our first official media coverage! Director Jeff Nucera stops by Dave & Ethan's 2000" Weird Al Podcast to chat about the movie!
He does it again here, too!
Our friends at Go Fug Yourself gave us a shout out in their Friday, Feb 10th roundup of awesomeness!
