Voted one of Comedy Centrals 100 greatest stand-up comedians of all time, Robert Schimmel set record ratings for his Showtime and HBO Specials and was about to star in his own prime-time series. Then he hit a few road bumps He had a heart attack, got cancer, had his television series cancelled before it began, met his soul mate, lost his wife when she found out about the soul-mate, got divorced, lost a house, got remarried though not necessarily in that order. A lot has happened to Schimmel since 2000. He survived it all, and the result is a hysterical comedy event that marks his triumphant stand-up return. The comedian and best-selling author of Cancer on $5 a Day How Humour Got Me Through the Toughest Journey of My Life has plenty to say on everything from raising a 17 year old daughter to bargaining with the Almighty to how not to make friends with a dolphin. Bonus features include exclusive backstage footage and an interview with Robert Schimmel.
