Storyline

Hapless satirical songwriter Henry Phillips is lured to LA by renowned TV producer Jay Warren, who wants to make a show about the life of a struggling performer. When Jay sees Henry bomb at a local club, he is convinced that this story must be told. With the support of his longtime musician friend Jillian, and his well-meaning but sub-par manager Ellen Pinsky, Henry endures the ups and downs of LA living, and even secures what appears to be the Hollywood dream. But as a major TV network gets involved, he must decide whether his legacy will be to make jokes, or become the butt of them.

As Hilarious as Entertaining
15 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

Full of comedians and familiar faces. Punching Henry is the sequel to the 2010 film "Punching The Clown" following Henry Philips' good will and innate awkwardness. The films prequel is summarized near the start of the film to lay proper ground work for its sequel without expecting or requiring the audience to have seen its 2010 beginning. Understated comedy punctuated by laugh out loud moments. Surprisingly endearing and hilarious throughout. Couldn't recommend enough.
