We'll laugh at a talented comedian's various musings on pop culture, politics, stupid people, or their shitty life -- but we don't often see this person off the stage working the routine out or even going through those situations which fill the clubs with chortles. Removed from the brick backdrop and spotlight, these moments would likely take a different shape -- an ugly and uncomfortable one, and it's a wonder how many people (even junkies of that specific entertainment) would actually be game to watch it. But such is the premise for Dustin Guy Defa's small, no-budget second effort "Bad Fever," in which the director subjects the audience to the lonely ramblings of Eddie (Kentucker Audley, "Open Five") as he searches for a worthwhile human connection crafting his humorous, mile-a-minute perspectives on life.
