The documentary "3 Still Standing" will be showing at the Roxie Theater starting this Friday. 

The film looks at comedians Will Durst, Johnny Steele, and Larry Bubbles Brown – all three of whom seemed poised for stardom during the comedy club boom of the '80s, but whose careers never quite hit the national stage. The film shows the triumphs, struggles and dedication of the performers, still plying the craft that they love.

"I went to this meditation class recently…and I meet this woman and she's like, 'My name is Jennifer, but I prefer if you call me by my Sanskrit name, "Shavasana,'" opens comedian Dhaya Lakshminarayanan during one of her comedy sets. "Okay Jennifer, maybe you didn't know this, but Shavasana in yoga class just means lie flat on your back. Did your boyfriend give you that name?"

Lakshminarayanan performs with Samson Koletkar. Koletkar's stage name is Mahatma Moses, claiming he is "the only living Jewish Indian comedian in the world."
