Hacks is a 2002 independent film written and directed by Glenn Rockowitz. This film is a mockumentary shot in black and white but struggles to sit within any conventionally defined genre.

Plot

The story revolves around bad stand-up comedy performances by Jim Gaffigan, Michael Rispoli and Victor Varnado. The unlikely band of comics travel to a comedy and poultry festival in the country to exercise their art. Later, a follow-up gives a summary of how everyone has progressed since appearing at the festival, with differing levels of success. On the commercially released DVD (approx 83 minutes running time), the outtakes section runs in tandem with the credits for around 5 minutes.
