For years, Jim has been living a life of debauchery and mayhem, as the edgy stand-up comedian has more than taken advantage of the opportunities to satisfy his id that his career has provided. However, in his mid-30’s, he might have finally had enough; to please his mother and advance his career, Jim has decided to go Legit and make a real effort to turn his life around. However, he finds out that doing so will require time, effort, and patience, in addition to knowledge of how to play the game the proper way.
Going along for the ride toward legitimacy are Jim’s best friend Steve, himself trying to start life over after a divorce, and Steve’s wheelchair-bound brother Billy, afflicted with advanced staged Muscular Dystrophy. Jim may not be able to immediately get his career and personal life turned around and reverse the patterns that he had set (and followed) for quite a while, but he figures that he can help the two of them live a little easier and freer while he figures things out for himself. Will Jim be a good influence on his friends and find what he was looking for through his interactions with them?
