Will the real Joey please stand up?
8 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Joey was excited about his comedy routine. The whole family came to support him. But a famous comedian was there who blew the house away. When Joey got up do do his routine, everyone left!

Naturally, Joey is upset - so upset that he decides he's done with comedy. Instead, he plans to become a business man. But as he looks for a job and receives job offers, he turns them down. The family lets him go on, but Jesse finally realizes they must do something when D.J. gives up guitar, quoting Joey's words when he gave up comedy.

Jesse and Joey are a hoot! The best part of the show is when Jesse tries to do Jesse's comedy routing which forces Joey to do his routine and gets a big round of applause as he brings down the house!

A heart-to-heart between Joey and D. J. sets things right.
