Chris & Jim Corgel
In mid-90s Detroit, a motley crew of young skaters, goths, punks, and other self-described “weirdos” created an anarchic sketch show that aired on public access television, called “30 Minutes of Madness.” A local cult hit, everyone involved was sure this real life “Wayne’s World” was their entree to a big time career on MTV or Comedy Central-but then, reality got in the way. Now, on the occasion of its 20th anniversary, the gang returns to their Michigan hometown in an attempt to rediscover the creative mojo that once provided such an exhilarating outlet. But with their lives in various states of disarray-some have struggled with mental illness and drug addiction, others with jail time and homelessness-the journey to get the band back together takes on unexpected emotional weight and poignancy as the heartbreak of teenage ambition meets middleaged disappointment. With its bittersweet playfulness, this wistful story of creativity and purpose will ring true with anyone who remembers what
