Every month, The Iron Mule Short Comedy Screening Series assembles the funniest, most inventive short films from around the world for a night of off-the-wall entertainment. Director Jay Stern, comedian Victor Varnado and a special guest judge host the evening, which culls the best in animation, web series and traditional film. Each night is capped off with the world premiere of the latest “Wanna Be a Star?” film, which matches up one lucky audience member from the previous month’s show with a filmmaker to turn an audience-suggested title into a short film — with hilarious results. After the screenings, stick around for the after-party at Symphony Space’s Bar Thalia, where you can mingle with filmmakers and film lovers. Who knows, maybe you’ll collaborate on the next viral comedy hit.
