A failed inventor Jimmys latest dead-end job is at a supermarket where he stocks shelves with his friend Ray an amiable pothead. But what Jimmy really wants to be is a stand-up comic. He decides to follow his dream at an open mike night at a low-rent nightclub. Failing on his first night Jimmy becomes obsessed with honing his craft. His efforts lead to the disintegration of his marriage and the loss of his job. However the mounting disappointments in his downward-spiraling life only serve to fuel his routines which resemble therapy sessions more than comedy.
