Storyline

After getting one of his jokes published in a postal newsletter, Cliff thinks he's the jokemeister of Boston. However, only Lilith appreciates his brand of humor. He wants Rebecca to have a comedy night at Cheers starring himself, but Rebecca suggests he go to a comedy club open mic night, which he does, exposing a few and diminishing number of other Bostonians to his brand of humor. Back at the bar, Sam breaks a tooth on a shell that was in some crab salad from Melville's. Despite the fact that the salad was given free to Woody, Sam vows to sue to get even with his nemesis, John Allen Hill. Beyond that, Sam pickets outside of Melville's, telling his story, or a more fanciful version, to anyone who will listen. Hill admits that Sam's act, however futile, is causing his business harm and thus decides to settle with Sam. However, Hill may have more up his sleeve to beat Sam once again.

My Son, the Father (#10.15)
26 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Carla is excited. Her son Geno decided to become a priest. So now that she thinks she will get to heaven no matter what, she is being twice as mean as always. Only the thing is that at night Geno changes his mind and decides he should be a model. Cliff becomes a stand up comedian although most don't like him and Sam wants to sue Hill over a shell in the food that broke his tooth.

Carla being terrified of God after her son decides not to be a priest anymore was great. Hiding under the bar with all the thunder going on outside. Perfectly done.

Cliff's jokes were so not funny! Which made it even funnier to watch him tell it and especially Lilith loving them.
