In 1987 a kid from nowhere had a dream of getting somewhere. It was a time when cocaine was king, sex was dangerous, television diamond sales were a business, and business was booming. But in 1990 the party was over.

A portrait of two decades in the life of the television-sales business, the days of a dreamer, and the nights in between. Everyone's blessed with one special thing and Griff Hedgley plans on being a star. A big bright shining star. Griff Hedgley: The Rise and Fall of a Diamond Guy.

Written by Kerry O'Neill
Directed by Mark Rennie
Starring Jacob Wysocki, Matt Cordova, Alana Johnston, Mike Lane, Ele Woods and Jeremy McKiernan

The seeds of Butt were planted in the stand up scene in Chicago as Joe McAdam and Chris Stephens' friendship gave way to a cold, calculated working relationship. They began collaborating frequently on shows at iO and Second City. Since moving to Los Angeles they've written and acted on projects with Comedy Central, IFC, Funny or Die and Twitch as well as co-written and co-starred in a self produced pilot Cowards which won "Best Comedy Pilot" at the 2014 New York TV Festival. Butt currently makes filmed sketches as well as performs live across the country, including the San Francisco SketchFest. On this special night, they call UCB Franklin home.
