Freeman as Dick Gregory Actor Shelton Jolivette as Richard Pryor Comedian Derrick Keener as Flip Wilson Synopsis: Struggling young comic Mickey Housley is trying to reach the big time but his act is not quite together. He is lucky to get booked at a funeral. Finally a real shot to become a successful comedian, a major talent scout is looking to book new emerging comics on a new hot stand-up comedy TV show followed by a national tour. Mickey bombs more often than not and this night is no different. His set lacks solid material, he hurls insults at the audience members, and he uses excessive vulgarity. While trying to get his act together in time for the scout, he gets a visit from Bert Williams, Moms Mabley, Dick Gregory, Flip Wilson, and Richard Pryor. These pioneers are too funny to be forgotten.
Some mature language.
