The Comedian's Guide To Survival (2016)
Friday 28th October 2016
When you hit rock bottom, the only thing left to do is stand-up, as demonstrated in the hilarious The Comedian's Guide To Survival, coming to DVD from 31st October 2016, courtesy of Signature Entertainment.
Struggling comedian James Mullinger (based on the eponymous, real-life comedian) has come to a crossroads in his life; no one wants to see him perform, his wife is fed up, and his day time boss has given him an ultimatum - take a promotion and never do stand up again, or stick to the comedy and lose his job. To add salt to the wound, his boss, the editor of COQ Magazine, wants him to interview the greatest comedians in the UK and North America for an upcoming comedy special.
Recalling his own worst performances and the disasters that followed, James analyses where it all went wrong, and finds himself steering the interviews to his own interests, rather than those of the magazine's. Through spending time with his former heroes, a faint glimmer of his passion for stand-up comedy begins to stir again...
Starring James Buckley (The Inbetweeners Movie, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping) and featuring Paul Kaye (Game Of Thrones, Doctor Who), MyAnna Buring (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part One, Downton Abbey), Tim McInnerny (Eddie The Eagle, Blackadder), Mark Heap (Friday Night Dinner, Green Wing), as well appearances from the crème de la crème of UK and international comedy talent such as Jimmy Carr, Omid Djalili, Gina Yashere, Gilbert Gottfried, Mike Ward and Luenell, The Comedian's Guide To Survival is this year's must see Brit-com!
