R | | Comedy, Drama
The life of Buddy Young, a comic legend in flashbacks but an old man looking for work in the present.
There is one scene where Buddy Young, Jr. is watching Your Show of Shows (1950) starring Sid Caesar and wincing. Ironically, Billy Crystal has cited Sid Caesar for his reason wanting to get into comedy.
And now, the star of our show, the kamikaze of comedy! Fasten your seat belts, put on your crash helmets; because here he comes... Mr. Saturday Night... Buddy Young, Junior!
When Buddy is talking with Elaine at the gazebo the first night he meets her, the boom mic is visible just before the ferry boat passes by, and again after she asks him if his brother brings a girl to him after every show.
