Between the Laughter | Barbara K. Lee | 2006 | 43 min
This feature-length documentary looks at Stephen O’Keefe, a deaf, stand-up comedian. Faced with the usual challenges that life presents – marriage, children and career – Stephen works extra hard just to be able to hear (with the aid of a cochlear implant) and communicate with those around him. While many hearing-impaired people find life isolating, Stephen embraces the spotlight and chooses to step forward and entertain people.
