Barry Crimmins during the filming of "Call Me Lucky."

The No Hero Homecoming will see Skaneateles-raised comedian Barry Crimmins perform in his old stomping grounds for the first time since the release of "Call Me Lucky," the critically acclaimed Bobcat Goldthwait documentary about his life.

The show will take place at 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 13, at Auburn Public Theater, 8 Exchange St., Auburn. Paul Kozlowski will open.

"Call Me Lucky," which premiered at last year's Sundance Film Festival, tells how Crimmins went from a Skaneateles childhood to revered status in the American stand-up comedy scene. It also focuses on the trauma in his life, and how it positioned him to help and encourage others who've experienced their own. The film includes interviews with Steven Wright, David Cross, Patton Oswalt, Marc Maron, Margaret Cho and more, and has won awards from the 2015 Sundance, the Chicago Critics and Boston Independent film festivals.

Crimmins has returned to full-time touring in light of the film's release.

"After two years of working on the film, it's fun to be back out doing shows," he told The Citizen in a Q&A earlier this month. "It's nice to get an hour or two a night when I'm on the stage doing what I'm doing."

Tickets to the show are $15. For more information, call (315) 253-6669 or visit auburnpublictheater.org.
