‘Evocateur: The Morton Downey, Jr. Movie’ Redband Trailer

Yes!! Very excited for this one:

Before entire networks were built on populist personalities; before reality morphed into a TV genre; the masses fixated on a single, sociopathic star: controversial talk-show host Morton Downey, Jr.

In the late ’80s, Downey tore apart the traditional talk format by turning debate of current issues into a gladiator pit. His blow-smoke-in-your-face style drew a rabid cult following, but also the title “Father of Trash Television.” Was his show a platform for the working man or an incubator for Snooki and The Situation? Ironbound Films’ √ČVOCATEUR: THE MORTON DOWNEY JR. MOVIE dissects the mind and motivation of television’s most notorious agitator.

‘Evocateur: The Morton Downey, Jr. Movie’ hits theatres and On Demand June 7th from Magnolia Pictures. As a bonus, here’s a favourite Morton Downey Jr. clip of mine featuring Lloyd Kaufman from Troma!
