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
The Comedian's Guide to Survival is absolutely hilarious! My favourite comedy of 2016 by far!
Where do I begin? The Comedian's Guide to Survival literally had me howling from start to finish, James Buckley puts in a tour de force performance as up and coming comedian James Mullinger, trying to find his footing in the world of stand up comedy, whilst balancing his day job from his demanding boss. Coming to a cross-roads, James must choose between his life long passion of stand up comedy, or losing his job entirely. This movie follows the life-affirming real life journey of comedian James Mullinger, and will have you smiling from ear to ear, with hilarious one liners, and a refreshing take on the "movie about comedians genre" Any movie that has the line "...Chowing down on a lot of producer dong!" is certainly worthy of your time. Highly recommended!
