It only hurts until you laugh.
All Joking Aside
CHARLENE MURRAY wants nothing more than to become a stand-up comedian, but life won't stop getting in the way of her ambitions. From her soul-sucking job, to the heartbreaking estrangement from her family, to that bully who heckles her first amateur night gig, she just can't catch a break. But when she discovers that the heckler, BOB CARPENTER, actually used to be a big name on the comedy circuit before his career crashed and burned, she turns to him for mentorship; a request that is quickly shot down by the now grizzled barfly. But Charlene is tenacious, and over time the two find something in each other that has been missing in their own lives, a friendship is born, and Charlene learns to find funny in places she never expected.
