JIFF-Standing Up, Falling Down

No Free Tickets

Things are not going according to plan for Scott (Ben Schwartz), a stand-up comedian begrudgingly returning to Long Island after striking out on the Los Angeles comedy scene. He’s humiliated to move back in with his family and haunted by what could have been with Becky, his hometown girlfriend. Wracked with doubt and facing the prospect of a soul-crushing ‘real’ job, Ben finds an unexpected connection with Marty (Billy Crystal), a local Jewish dermatologist and charming barfly with a penchant for karaoke. As their unlikely friendship evolves, Marty and Scott find the strength to start confronting their long-simmering regrets.
This poignant and warmhearted comedy is an ode to companionship and facing failure together.
