Aly Pankiw's Toronto-set feature debut focuses on a young stand-up comedian (Rachel Sennott, BOTTOMS, SHIVA BABY) struggling with PTSD and the decision to join the search for a missing teen she used to nanny. With Olga Petsa, Jason Jones, Sabrina Jalees.

"Features a mic-drop performance from Rachel Sennott." (New York Times' Critics Pick)

"... this ambitious, imperfect drama does pull off a complex thematic mix, encompassing issues from grief to sexual assault, with a generous helping of humor to lend its darkness some light." (Variety)

"It’s blend of emotional realism, a fantastic lead performance, and exacting direction from Pankiw make for one of the essential movies of the season." (Film Threat)

"Rachel Sennott has the greatest face. It cannot lie, no matter what her characters are saying. That honesty makes her ideal for films with tricky tones... And it’s essential to 'I Used to Be Funny'." (Globe and Mail)
