Starring The Daily Show’s Rob Corddry as the title character,
Blackballed: The Bobby Dukes Story, is the tale of paintball’s first
superstar. While leading his team to their unprecedented fourth
consecutive victory at the Hudson Valley Paintball Classic, Bobby Dukes
was shot. Desperate to stay in the game, Bobby intentionally wiped the
paint from his jersey, thus committing paintball’s most heinous crime
— "Wiping." Rejected by the paintball community, Bobby was banished
from the sport. In disgrace, Bobby disappeared.
Ten years later,
the ban lifted, a well-traveled and more mature Bobby is back to prove
himself on the field that made him famous. Bobby joins forces with an
unlikely ally, assembles a band of misfits and attempts to erase the
memory of his tainted past.
The cast is rounded out by familiar faces hailing from the Upright
Citizens Brigade Theater, including: Paul Scheer, Rob Riggle, Curtis
