Struggling Brit comedian James Mullinger (James Buckley, The Inbetweeners) has come to a crossroads in his life. No one wants to see him perform, his wife is fed up and his boss has given him an ultimatum – take a promotion and never do stand up again, or stick to the comedy and lose his job. When James is sent to L.A. to interview a bunch of comedians for his magazine, something tickles his funny bone once more, as he gains insight and spends time with his former heroes.

A lively mix of comedy and pathos, based on the real-life experiences of James Mullinger, “A Comedian’s Guide To Survival” also features respected comedians Alan Carr, Omid Djalili, Luenell, Gilbert Gottfried, Gina Yashere, Mike Wilmot, Mike Ward and the man James Mullinger himself.
