Jimmy O'Brien works in the stockroom of a grocery store, where he is reminded of his powerlessness by his boss. Only his love for his wife offers him comfort, but their obligations to his invalid grandmother and a new baby stifle their dreams. It is not until open-mike night at the local comedy club that he allows himself to do what he needs to do: run off at the mouth.Written by

The"Jimmy Show" is actor Frank Whaley's second picture following Joe the king. In this film Jimmy O'Brien a unfunny and very unsuccessful comedian deals with his needy girlfriend, his hard job and trying to make people laugh. This movie really does show the realistic life of a struggling comedian and it captures the characters true passion for his profession. But than again the plot just becomes a whirlwind of bad luck for jimmy and doesn't really seem to give him a break. Carla Gugino as Jimmy's girlfriend Annie gives a great performance and Ethan Hawke also manages to steal a few scenes away from his co-star and director Frank Whaley. Overall Whaley has great potential as a up and coming dramatic director.
