Plot: A wildly eccentric film about a struggling stand-up comedian who must find his own voice outside his famous father's comedic orbit.
Tommy tries out an act in Las Vegas, but his egoistic father George derails the show. In frustration, Tommy scolds the audience and bolts from the stage, and flees town. He goes back to his childhood home, the seaside vaudeville hub of Blackpool, England, in search of inspiration. The comedians he auditions there are a disappointing, Fellini-esque lot from the past. Then Tommy meets Jack, who is both genuinely very funny and very scary. Seeing Jack and his family perform their act, Tommy realizes that George is not the original he pretends to be.
