Storyline

Joe Keegan is the 'Rocky' of stand-up comedy. A fifteen-year comedy veteran who was pegged for stardom early on in his career but has blown every major audition he has ever had in legendary fashion. Fresh off a recent fiasco with a heckler that included a broken nose, Joe's friend Kenny tells him he can get them an audition for 'The Tonight Show' and that it's 'a can't miss.' The one catch is that it's at a roadside bar in tiny Pine Lake, Wisconsin, hometown of Tonight Show Talent scout, Harvey Skorik who never misses 'Rocktoberfest.' Having doubts but needing a break from L.A., Joe reluctantly agrees to go. Arriving in Wisconsin, Joe bombs his first night on stage when local emcee Dug sabotages him. Joe cannot get a break until he encounters his former high school English teacher, the beautiful Molly Mahoney who is also at a crossroads in her life, coming off a failed marriage. Molly is excited for Joe's 'Tonight Show' opportunity. Joe tells her he just wants to prove to himself that... Written by Festival Guy

Loved the Godfather
17 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recently saw this movie at the Saugatuck Film festival and loved it. It nicely captures small-town Wisconsin's unique charm, beautiful scenery and quirky characters, while also providing hilarious insight into the struggles of up-and-coming comedians. At times, I laughed so hard I was in tears! Tony Goldwyn is great as the Jaker, Lauren Holly is beautiful in the role of Molly, and Pete Schwaba is the perfect Joe to Lance Barber's hilarious Kenny. I also loved the fact that the score was done by Kurt Newman of the Bodeans, an awesome Wisconsin band. I can't wait to see this movie in theaters soon, and I hope that Pete Schwaba is working on his next creation - I'll be anxiously awaiting it.
