THE COMEDIAN

Internationally renowned stand-up comedian Greg Fleet is at the top of his game.
The only thing he needs is an audience.

SYNOPSIS

COVID closed down venues across Australia and live performances became impossible. When the reality of performing for laughs without an audience finally dawns on this comedian, it raises some serious questions about his own mortality as a performer.

What is left for this ageing performer, when there is no safety net and all is stripped away?
