Kena Monique Entertainment has introduced a brand new comedy film called ‘The Workout Room,’ and is currently raising funds on global crowdfunding platform Indiegogo to bring the project to life.

The film centers around a stand-up comedian named Teejay, performed by actor and producer Joe Torry of Poetic Justice fame, who is given the opportunity of a lifetime at the cost of disappointing his daughter.

"I wrote this movie to showcase hard working comedians struggling to make it to the big screen, say Kena Monique, Executive Director and Writer of the film.

The Workout Room features a stripper pole in the center of the comedy stage and an atmosphere that is a cross between sitcom hit "Cheers" and the club scenes from the mid 90s film "A Thin Line Between Love and Hate". Both Teejay and Juice are on the verge of their big break in the comedy world. XENA, the very popular comedy promoter turned club owner, approaches Teejay with a huge opportunity to be the feature act for an extremely famous comedian.

Teejay boasts with excitement which quickly turns into anxiety when he realizes that this opportunity falls on the same day as his daughter’s wedding. The Workout Room Movie is a funny, plot driven film with no profane language that can be viewed by all ages.

Kena Monique Entertainment, which has produced and promoted a series of nationwide comedy events spanning over 7 years working with the likes of Cedric the Entertainment, Mo’Nique, and D.L. Hughley, has created a film in ‘The Workout Room’ about a world they know well.

“I turned to crowd funding because we could not afford to wait on Hollywood to fund our vision, says Kena Monique about the idea of raising funds on Indiegogo, “I'm using my personal money for half and my fellow stand up comedy and indie film supporters for the rest.”

The film is executive produced and written by Kena Lashley and directed by Erika Rogers. Roni Brown is also serving as a Producer of the film which is a collaboration between KenaMonique Entertainment and More2Life Entertainment. The film stars Joe Torry and Tammi Mac playing the respective leads.

Once successfully funded, the company plans on entering production in July 2016 with the company aiming for a March 2017 Movie Premiere and Release. The Workout Room is now live and available to support on Indiegogo: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-workout-room-movie-a-comedy-film#/
