2018 Movie Series
is sponsored by

Pulp Fiction is a 1994 American crime film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, based on a story by Tarantino and Roger Avary, and starring John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Wills, Ving Rhames, and Uma Thurman. The film tells a few stories of criminal Los Angeles. The film’s title refers to the pulp magazines and hard boiled crime novels popular during the mid-with century, known for their graphic violence and punchy dialogue.

The screenplay of Pulp Fiction was written in 1992 and 1993, and incorporated some scenes originally written by Avary for True Romance. Its plot is presented out of chronological order. The film is also self-referential from its opening moments, beginning with a title card that gives two dictionary definitions of “pulp”. Considerable screen time is devoted to monologues and casual conversations with eclectic dialogue revealing each character’s perspectives on several subjects, and the film features an ironic combination of humor and strong violence. Its script was reportedly turned down by Columbia Tri-Star as “too demented”. Miramax co-chariman Harvey Weinstein was instantly enthralled with it, however, and the film became the first that Miramax fully financed.

Pulp Fiction won the Palme d’Or at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival, and was a major critical and commercial success upon its U.S. release. It was nominated for seven Oscars, including Best Picture; Tarantino and Avary won for Best Original Screenplay. John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, and Uma Thurman each received Academy Award nominations for their roles and revitalized and/or elevated their careers. The nature of its development, marketing, and distribution – and its consequent profitability – had a sweeping effect on the field of independent cinema.

Since its release, Pulp Fiction has been widely regarded as Tarantino’s masterpiece, with particular praise singled out for its screenwriting. The film’s self-reflexivity, unconventional structure, and extensive use of homage and pastiche have led critics to describe it as a touchstone of postmodern film. It is often considered a cultural watershed, with a strong influence felt not only in later movies that adopted various elements of its style, but in several other media as well. A 2008 Entertainment Weekly list named it the best film from 1983 to 2008 and the work has appeared on many critics lists of the greatest films ever made. In 2013, Pulp Fiction was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”

Adrian Cosby is a Stand-up comedian from Yellow Springs Ohio. He started performing in 2009 and quickly decided that making audience’s laugh was more important than making lots of money. Described as, “thinking people’s comedy”, Cosby has become a crowd favorite not just because of his onstage likability but also because he enjoys using his multi-ethnic background and intellectual wit to make audiences from all walks of life laugh at him as well as themselves. Smart, smooth and surprising Adrian’s unique look and style make him the perfect complement for many diverse acts & audiences.  He has performed on “Rock on the Range” and Gilda’s Laughfest.

Known as Uncle Lar’, Larry Reeb is the wise-cracking black sheep, politically incorrect relative everyone knows. Like any concerned relative Uncle Lar’ wants to help. So in his own twisted way he does. He gives you “tips”. Uncle Lar’ offers tips on everything from marriage to lotteries to children. Always topping them off with, “that’s a tip from your Uncle Lar’.”

Reeb is a strong, distinct, classic character, with sarcastic attitude and a sardonic wit. He conveys his concepts with rapid fire one liners. “It’s a sick world and I’m a happy guy”, Reeb proudly announces after stating his particularly twisted observations. Reeb didn’t invent obscene phone calls or adultery, but he makes his living about them. In a perfect world Uncle Lar’ would be unemployed.

Where others cringe, Reeb thrives. His sharp wit was custom built to handle hecklers. During a performance a regretful drunk once shouted “talk about sex.” Larry retorted, “Your parents shouldn’t have had it”, and of course capped it with, “that’s another tip from your Uncle Lar’.”

Uncle Lar’ is a regular on “The Bob & Tom Show”, syndicated in over 100 markets. Larry has been voted Chicago Comedian of the Year, and has made numerous television and radio appearances.

His tips are tops. His inflections infectious. And the fans are fanatics. Reeb’s cult-like clan can’t get enough. Whether he’s headlining comedy clubs, colleges or conventions, his wit is universally appealing relatively speaking, everyone travels from everywhere to see their Uncle Lar’.
