Plot Outline:

An aging insult comic finds himself stuck in a rut by being seen as the same TV character that made him famous years earlier. Desperate for reinvention, and maybe a more personal connection, he just might find his chance when a moment goes viral and puts him back in the spotlight. -- Chris Kavan

Trivia: De Niro has been trying to make this movie for 8 years. Why? Even the jokes (or the stand up comedy, if you like) are not that funny. I wonder what the originally draft of this movie was like with Sean Penn on board to direct. The thing that gave De Niro the desire to make this movie, however with his recent work, his decisions are becoming more questionable.
