Summary

When your life’s a joke it’s time to stand up!

The story follows a college lecturer, Martin Dawson played by Nick Figgis and his hope to escape from obscurity by having a screenplay made into a film. We see his relationship with his ex-wife and children, his mistress and film agent along with his sometimes overbearing parents. We witness his eventual breakdown during a cathartic rant on an open mic spot at a local comedy club in front of a packed house. During the performance we see flash backs to a memorable trip to Whitby with all the pathos and comic talent you could expect from Godber as our hero endures an insane weekend with his parents. We have a UK theatrical release scheduled for October 2017.
