Storyline

Melvin is a pathetic loser of a motorcycle cop who gets demoted to working the night shift as a punishment for his constant screw-ups. During his off-duty time, however, Melvin turns to his secret obsession: comedy. He puts a paper bag over his head and performs in front of audiences as "The Unknown Comic". Unable to balance his two lives, he seeks psychiatric help to try and resolve who he really wants to be. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Jackie Kong comedy masterpiece

I truly think that Jackie Kong deserve to be honored for having accomplished such a great piece of cinema that is Night Patrol. He chose one of the greatest actress of all-time, Linda Blair to do one of the main attraction. And the main attraction she is! Look at her and tell me you're not jacked like hell! She is amazing. Love this film! One of the greatest of all-time!

Long live Night Patrol
