When a bipolar stand-up comic wins the lottery, anything can happen.Freddie Angel is a middle-aged lovable disaster, living in his mother’s basement and hustling for stage time at a run-down comedy club. He’s invisible to women until Lady Luck smiles and hands him a winning lottery ticket.
Everyone has an opinion on what he should do with his sudden windfall, especially the voices in his head. If anyone knows what it’s like to be an underdog, it’s Freddie. Now he has a chance to transform his life and help other people too. But as he embarks on his unorthodox philanthropic mission, Freddie soon discovers the pitfalls of instant wealth and pseudo-celebrity.
An outrageous homage to Pay it Forward with a hint of Last Comic Standing, the Funologist is an irreverent glimpse into a brilliant mind of mania and generosity.
