BLACKBALLED: THE BOBBY DUKES STORY

  • Description
  • "Second place is first place for losers." Bobby Dukes ... paintball legend ... fallen hero.

    Ten years after a "wiping" violation got him ejected from the championship and banned from the game, Bobby Dukes (Rob Corddry) returns to the Hudson Valley after years of planning and training in exile to reclaim his lost glory. Assembling a hodge-podge team of paintball misfits that include the referee who caught him cheating, Bobby Dukes must face his inner demons and the scorn of the paintball community to lead his less-than-ideally-prepared team to victory.

    A perfectly orchestrated improv ensemble comedy led by the subtly hilarious performance of THE DAILY SHOW' S Rob Corddry, BLACKBALLED lives up to the highest tradition of Christopher Guest-style mockumentaries.
