Written by BAFTA WINNER JOHN GODBER and Directed by AWARD WINNING DANIEL COLL. WHEN YOUR LIFE’S A JOKE IT’S TIME TO STAND UP! The story follows a college lecturer, Martin Dawson played by Nick Figgis and his hope to escape from obscurity by having a screenplay made into a film. We see his relationship with his ex-wife and children, his mistress and film agent along with his sometimes-overbearing parents. We witness his eventual breakdown during a cathartic rant on an open mic spot at a local comedy club in front of a packed house. During the performance, we see flash backs to a memorable trip to Whitby with all the pathos and comic talent you could expect from Godber as our hero endures an insane weekend with his parents. This film is a universal story that resonates with most people illustrating the sometimes confusing and conflicted nature of love of all kinds. With Nick Figgis, Toyah Willcox, Jane Thornton, John Godber, Amy Thompson, Ann Micklethwaite and Paul Lavers.
