From The Back Of The Box
9 February 2002 | by (Great White North) – See all my reviews

The laughs are nonstop as Mark Chapin and a gang of ambitious young comics strive to make it in the exciting and colorful world of comedy at the famous comedy club in Los Angeles, THE FUNNY FARM. These budding comedy stars are as crazy off stage as they are on: Miguel "America's funniest illegal alien"; Miles, who can't decide if he's a black comic or a comic who happens to be black; Bruce, whose manic act borders on insanity; and Peter, in intense political satirist.

Mark soon realizes that it's not quite as easy to achieve success as he had planned. He is forced to come to terms with the difficult life he has chosen, and he matures in the process. The result is an insightful and heartwarming comedy about those who life the life of a comedian.
