Excellent 'Channel four' mini series
Comics is the story of a wise talking, stand up comedian from New York who is sent to London because of his lack of respect for 'authority'etc... On arrival he witnesses a gangland murder and is hunted down which causes nightmares from his past to resurface. The film is written by Linda La Plante, one of British television's most prolific writers. Although it doesn't sound too original, it is definitely one of the best contemporary mini- series to come out of Britain in years. Unfortunately, nobody else has seen it. It also has an excellent central performance from the highly under rated Tim Guinee (Vampire$, Blade, the pompatus of love).
