STANDING UP, FALLING DOWN
First show: February 21
A warmhearted comedy from Shout Factory STANDING UP, FALLING DOWN stars Billy Crystal and Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation, Star Wars: The Force Awakens). A wonderfully acted story of mourning, loss, and new beginnings.
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 (Eloise Mumford), the hometown girlfriend he abruptly left for the West Coast. Wracked with doubt and facing the prospect of a soul-crushing “real” job, Ben finds an unexpected connection with Marty (Billy Crystal), a local dermatologist and charming barfly with a penchant for karaoke. Scott learns that Marty’s larger-than-life personality and alcoholism mask past disappointments of his own. As their unlikely friendship evolves, Marty and Scott find the strength to start confronting their long-simmering regrets.
