is a drama based on Rick Burd's life in New York City during the 1980's and 1990's.

This story follows a thirty year old gay man as he searches for love, deals with difficult parents after coming out; experiences friends and neighbors as they are facing their mortality, leading him to confront his own. It is then, where he seeks to leave his mark by becoming one of the first openly gay standup comedians.

Played out against singing telegrams, the making of crazy costumes, props and writing of goofy songs; itís hard not to feel the pressure to be cheerful every hour of every day.

Outwardly, it appears everything is going his way; but actually he is slowly losing it all, to the point that when it's all said and done, there will be only one thing left to sing about.
