The film follows the journey of comedian Gary Shand in his quest for celebrity status and recognition from his peers and comedy fans. He's not the world's luckiest guy and winning his battle against depression, alcohol and on coming mental illness whilst trying to be successful on stage means that his life is a roller coaster.

I saw this 'by accident' at the London independent film festival.My mate had a spare ticket and so I went along.It's got the big guy from Eastenders in it who I now know is Ricky Grover,seen him in loads of things and he's tops.You feel really sorry for the main character and the guy who plays him Glen Maney who I haven't heard of before is nothing short of brilliant.If he doesn't win some sort of award for this it's a crime.Mr.Ali is funny.I have not heard of Jay Sodagar before either but really funny.Patrick Monahan is the comedian who won show me the funny.I have seen him on other things too.He's almost surreal but the way he looks at the main character is hilarious.The thing is it's so dark and miserable yet you can't help but laugh at it.It's just plain good.I haven't laughed so much in ages.Oh yeah and the mad barman in wicked.I have seen Craig Campbell before on McIntyre's comedy roadshow.Funny geezer but he's hilarious in this.For east enders fans there's an ex-east ender in it too.Can't remember his name but top actor.Well worth the watch and I reckon it'll go down as the British 'clerks'.Different style but just as funny.I'm telling everyone about it.
