I wanted to do a story about my life on the road for the past 20 years and show people the other side of stand-up comedy, the side without all the laughter and all the isolation of being a comedian. It is also a bit of a love story and about trying to connect to someone. When you are performing you connect to thousands, but do you ever really connect to one?… Manny Lewis is just a well-known comic who … has trouble holding down a relationship. Everyone has a trouble trying to connect to people. There is a bit of me in there, how much of me I will leave up to the audience to decide.
