"The myth of the comfortable cadger
Everybody knows pandhandlers actually make serious bank and only pretend to be poor and desperate, right?
Uh, well, OK. Some people think that. Which is why local comedian Keith Lowell Jensen decided to see what kind of living he could really make by hanging out at freeway exit ramps with naught but a cardboard sign, his wit and no shame.
With local filmmakers Jonathan Morken and John Astobiza, Jensen documents his experiences in a new film, Why Lie? I Need a Drink, premiering at the Crest Theatre Friday, March 7.
Doors open at 7:30 for an 8:30 show, which will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers.
