A slobby, middle-aged man with dreams of becoming a standup comic decides to quit work, hit the road and give it a go. The only problem is that he's not funny, his idea of comedy is stuck in the genteel humour of 1950's radio plays, therefore his attempts to make a modern audience laugh fail miserably.
That is until he accidentally becomes involved in murder and dismemberment and works such deathly mishaps into his act. Which, to his surprise and reluctant gain, go down a storm.
The film itself isn't actually that funny, but it is certainly one that holds your attention due to its unusual tale. Or maybe it won't. How should I know? I'm not your attention span.
