Sidelined in the wings of a theatre in the back streets of Amsterdam, four old men try to save their dying cabaret act. Broken, ill and dejected they try to copy younger, more successful counterparts - with the poignant aim of reinventing their glory years.
Funny, moving and beautiful bizarre, The Jossers is an examination of what happens when the laughs stop and the audience go quiet.
The Jossers reunites the original members of People Show 75: Cabaret - George Khan, Mark Long, Emil Wolk and Chahine Yavroyan in a short film especially created to mark our 50th Year.
The film was completed in May 2016 and had its public premiere as part of People Show's 50th Year Celebration at Toynbee Studios in December 2016.
The Jossers is currently being shown as part of the reuglar programming on ShortsTV across Europe, North America and Asia.
We are still also interested in screenings at international film festivals. Please contact us for details.
