I Used to Be Funny with Ally Pankiw


Visionary director Ally Pankiw (Schitt's Creek, Shrill, the Great) joined Friday Night Movie to talk about her powerful, insightful, and darkly funny film, I Used to Be Funny, starring Rachel Sennott, premiering at SXSW on March 13. We also jammed on our mutual favorite band - Muna - and Ally's work with them on three epic music videos (Silk Chiffon, Anything But Me, What I Want). And we made sure to talk about the greatness of Caleb Hearon (I Used to Be Funnny, Silk Chiffon), an outsanding actor and comic, as well as one of the fixtures of the "Ally Pankiw-universe" (which is our pod's nickname for her amazing body of work).

Follow all of the Friday Night Movie SXSW 2023 coverage and join Becky and Shai at the Wonder House March 11-14, noon-5pm, at Café Blue Downtown Austin, courtesy of the University of Arizona.
