Through candid interviews and unprecedented backstage access, this documentary explores the world of the working comedian and reveals a funny psychological profile of its practitioners. Also, we follow a retired comic's attempt to get back on stage after a thirteen-year absence. Ritch Shydner, at the top of his game in the 1980's, had HBO specials, shot five pilot TV shows, and had numerous late night appearances (Carson, Letterman, Leno, etc.) but never reached the big time. Ritch gives it another shot, but the scene has changed. Does Ritch have what it takes to connect with today's young crowds, and still get the laughs?
