Smart People Being Stupid Completed Events
The Tall Bike Joust
A diverse group of slightly misguided (but up for anything) people meet in a craft brewery's parking lot to joust on bicycles of double the normal height, raise money for a nonprofit bicycle shop that focuses on urban transportation equity, and to joyously celebrate life in all of its absurdity.
Intelligent & successful people from different walks of life gather to build, row, and race boats made entirely of cardboard and duct tape in an insane attempt to recapture the American Dream.
Smart People Being Stupid
Not learning from their previous mistakes and folly, the scientists, doctors, lawyers, pilots, and piano teachers are back again to build, row, and race (and mostly sink) cardboard boats. The sequel to the original Cardboard Titanics. Named as it was because I considered it too riduculous to admit I had made a sequel to comedic short documentary.
The Ghost Pepper Eating Contest of Jefferson County
A random collection of brave souls compete in a ghost pepper (aka the hottest pepper in the world) eating contest and unwittingly attempt to break the Guinness Record.
24 Hours Of Madness: The Innisfree Pub St. Patrick’s Day Experience
The very first Smart People Being Stupid film.
Somewhere on St. Patrick's Day in an Irish-themed pub in America, foolish people attempt to drink from the bar's opening at 6am to its closing 24 hours later. Amongst the challengers stands the former mascot of Notre Dame.
