The Iron Mule Short Comedy Screening Series was founded in April 2002 in New York. The name The Iron Mule is derived from the 1925 slapstick comedy of the same name by the great silent comedian Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, featuring Buster Keaton as an Indian. The name also encapsulates the kind of movies we love to show: tough, burly, and uncompromising.

Daniel Pecoraro is the audio intern at Symphony Space, and the producer and host of the quiz show The Thursday Trivia Podcast and the audio documentary series infinitespace.
