THE COMEDIAN

Film stills

Toks jausmas, kad abu bandom gyventi mele, lyg bandom įtikinti vienas kitą, kad viską darom dėl teisingų priežasčių ir kad mes iš tiesų skirti vienas kitam.

Ed is a stand-up comedian in his early thirties, he is handsome, charming, witty and lost. Trying to make it on the London comedy circuit, he spends his nights performing in small rooms above pubs and his days – at a call centre. He lives with Elisa, a beautiful French singer, the two like brother and sister, inseparable, loving and asexual. One day, on a night bus home, Ed meets Nathan, a young black artist, blunt, honest and free. They immediately connect and begin a passionate affair.
