Calgary Underground Film Festival favourites, Nick Prueher and Joe Pickett, are back in Calgary for the Canadian premiere of the somewhat-biographical documentary Chop & Steele, which chronicles their gag appearance on an unsuspecting breakfast television program—and the resulting lawsuit that followed.
