After a failed stint as a stand-up comedian in Los Angeles, Scott returns home to Long Island. He’s humiliated to move back in with his family and haunted by what could have been with Becky, the hometown girlfriend he left behind. Wracked with doubt and facing the prospect of a soul-crushing “real” job, Scott finds an unexpected connection with Marty, a charming and charismatic dermatologist with a penchant for karaoke. Scott learns that Marty’s antics and alcoholism mask past disappointments of his own. The two develop a friendship of shared misery that leads to humor, healing, and growth.
