Bunny Chow, part of The Global Film Initiative’s Global Lens 2008 series, follows the raucous and often ridiculous weekend journey of three stand-up comedians. Egos run high and careers are at stake as Kags, an arrogant womanizer, Joey, a devout yet conflicted Muslim, and Dave, a somewhat innocent novice with dreams of making it big on the comedy scene, embark on a road trip to Oppikoppi, South Africa’s biggest annual rock festival. The trio slips out of their normal routine for a few dusty and increasingly absurd days with hopes of mass debauchery, drugs, rampant sex, true love and conquering the rock stages with their comedy.
