Live at Mister Kelly’s is the story of two legendary Chicago night clubs - London House & Mister Kelly's - both of which illuminated the entire country by launching talent like Barbra Streisand, Herbie Hancock, Bette Midler, and Richard Pryor. Its Jewish visionary owners George and Oscar Marienthal smashed color and gender barriers to put fresh, irreverent voices in the spotlight and transform entertainment in the ‘50s, ‘60s, and ’70s. The film includes interviews and appearances by Barbra Streisand, Bob Newhart, the Smothers Brothers, Dick Gregory, Lainie Kazan, Herbie Hancock, Dick Cavett, Jerry Stiller, Bette Midler, Lanie Kazan, Lily Tomlin, Mort Sahl, Della Reese, Tim Reid, Fred Willard, Ramsey Lewis - and more. Live at Mister Kelly’s was scored by Neranenah’s Executive Director, Joe Alterman (who also appears in the film alongside Ramsey Lewis). Along with his band, Joe will be performing songs from the score after the screening.
