A-list stars unite for anti-bullying documentary

Andrew Cole in #NoJoke
#NoJoke is getting a VOD release in North America

In #NoJoke, singer Andrew Cole sets out to convince his musical idols to help him make a song for victims of bullying. He’s joined by Jeff Goldblum, Slash, Patrick Stewart, Lemmy, Chad Smith, Jane Lynch and more, who share their talents and their sometimes painful experiences. Andrew’s journey to understand bullying leads him to experts and to the ghosts of his own past – going beyond the tropes of today’s anti-bullying campaigns to the heart of the issue.

From writer/director Manfred Becker, #NoJoke chronicles a musician’s journey to create a song with some of the biggest stars in the industry. Along the way, he faces up to his painful past, while giving viewers a deep personal insight into the issue of bullying.

Ozzy Osbourne, Meat Loaf, Charlie Sheen, Michael Biehn, Diego Boneta, Julian Lennon and Steve Vai also feature in #NoJoke, available October 22 On Demand and Digital.

Official Synopsis : #NOJOKE is a compelling documentary that follows musician Andrew Cole as he puts together a star-studded cast for a song to raise awareness about bullying. Along the way he tracks down celebrities, experts, and the ghosts from his own past to go beyond the tropes of today’s anti-bullying campaigns and get to the heart of the issue.

One by one Andrew’s heroes come on board to lend their support with their music and personal, childhood stories: Slash, Ozzy Osbourne, Lemmy, Jeff Goldblum, Sam Roberts, Robbie Krieger, Steve Vai, Chad Smith, Lights, Patrick Stewart, Jane Lynch, and more.

In the beginning it was just a tune created by one of Andrew’s collaborators called “Joke.” Something about it struck a chord, and as the song took shape in Andrew’s mind, the demons from his youth came back to haunt him.

The documentary accelerates as his vision for the song grows to epic proportions, and he sets off on a mission to “put together an army” of musicians and artists to bring an end to bullying. But if he is truly have an impact, he knows that he can’t just pay lip service to the issue – he has to actually understand what’s going on when kids become predators and prey.

The adventure takes him across North America and the UK to talk with authors and academics who have spent their lifetime thinking about the issue of violence in the schoolyard, and how to address it. He also teams up with paparazzi in Hollywood and runs every hustle he can think of to get to all the stars he needs to make his dream of the song a reality.

Through the journey, Andrew realizes that the issue of bullying is far more complicated than a song can possibly address and far more personal than he ever imagined.
