Storyline

Struggling comedian James Mullinger (based on the eponymous, real-life comedian) has come to a crossroads in his life; no one wants to see him perform, his wife is fed up, and his day time boss has given him an ultimatum - take a promotion and never do stand up again, or stick to the comedy and lose his job. To add salt to the wound, his boss sends him to L.A. to interview some of the greatest comedians alive for the magazine. Through spending time with his former heroes, a faint glimmer of his passion for stand-up comedy begins to stir again... Written by Mark Murphy

The worst film ever made
6 December 2018 | by crafferty-12499See all my reviews

This is genuinely the worst film Ever made. I made it 18 minutes in so can't get a fair judgement I suppose. But that 18 minutes felt like a lifetime. Lead actor James whatever gives a worse performance than Melania trump acting as though she doesn't hate her husband. Honestly so bad
