An over-the-hill comic invites a young joke-writer to his Catskills cottage to help him update his act for a top-rated, late-night television show and his “break” into the big time. The action moves to a sleazy night-club in Brooklyn as a comic duo tries to negotiate a deal with a mafia-type club owner to get a spot on the same late-night show. The play ends in stand-up comedy heaven—the nationally televised talk show—where backstage the comics await their big moment, and for the older comic, his last chance.
“Mild adult themes and strong language.”
“A word of caution—not surprisingly, this show has its fair share of off-color language—which the playwright accurately portrays as part of the often gritty world of stand-up comedy.”
