The Comedian's Guide To Survival

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Failed comedian James Mullinger comes 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, the editor of COQ, wants him to interview the greatest comedians in the UK and North America for an upcoming comedy special. The recollecting of his worst performances and the disasters that followed, James analyses where it all went wrong, and finds himself steering the interviews to his own interests, rather than that of the magazine’s. Through spending time with his former heroes, a faint glimmer of his passion for comedy that once stirred within begins to emerge. http://www.gspstudios.co.uk/#!the-comedians-guide-to-survival/cgom
