Brittany Runs a Marathon
JILLIAN BELL IS A HOT MESS MAKING PROGRESS. Director Paul Downs Colaizzo in person for Q&A following the Saturday, 8/31, 8:15pm show! Brittany Forgler (Jillian Bell, Workaholics) enjoys the finer things in life, like getting completely wrecked, eating late-night burgers, and feeling like garbage all the time. After she stops in at a doctor's office to try and cop an Adderall prescription, she gets a dose of reality – her life is all messed up, and she's got to lose 55 pounds. Reluctantly, she takes up running, and slowly – very slowly – gains enough confidence to have a go at the grueling New York City Marathon. Jillian Bell shines in a breakout role, and portrays Brittany as a hilarious, troubled, hopeful person on an uncertain journey. Her circle of support includes her brother-in-law (Lil Rey Howery, GET OUT), her Instagram-famous roommate (Alice Lee), slacker co-worker (Utkarsh Ambudkar), and Michaela Watkins (SNL) as the annoying neighbor who encourages her to take her first tenuous steps. Lively and clever even when the jogging's slow, it's a bright, sweet comedy about taking responsibility for your own happiness.
