The Comedian

In Theaters FEBRUARY 3RD.


JACKIE BURKE is an insult comedian who rose to fame with an old TV show that has long since stopped airing. Now he spends his days trying to scrape by in small comedy clubs in New York. When he's sentenced to community service for punching a heckler he meets HARMONY, a sarcastic yet passionate woman, who is serving a similar sentence for assaulting her cheating ex-boyfriend. They can't seem to forget about one another, and against their better judgment, they get tangled up in each others lives.
