Will Chu is stuck in a thankless job while trying to pursue his passion in life, becoming a standup comedian. When it is the opportunity he’s been waiting for, the emcee slot on the road opening for his hero Billy G., The realities of life on the stage come crashing in. Between relentless hecklers, drunk comedy groupies, and hard to impress morning radio DJs, things get off to a rough start. Even if he can learn from his idols and overcome the challenges, he’ll have to prove he has what it takes to make this dream a reality.

Special Features:

The Making Of The Opening Act, Getting Started in Comedy, Extended Stand-Up Scenes featuring Jimmy O. Yang, Cedric the Entertainer, Whitney Cummings, and many more.

My Opinion: this DVD runs for 90 minutes and it follows the on the road life of a comedian which is very interesting as you have to be funny to get noticed. I believe is a lot of pressure on a comedian to be funny and make you laugh not knowing what your style of humor is. But I definitely learned a lot about film and it is a must-watch for anybody.
