Storyline

The year is 1984, and Boris Arkadiev, a fictional Soviet stand-up comedian, is unraveling under the weight of fame, censorship, KGB "patronage," and his own insecurities. Finally, the comedian snaps and - armed with the exotic American notion of "insult humor" - takes his revenge.

A dull film about nothing much. Even Prazdnik and The Death of Stalin were more on point.
