When seasoned comedian George Simmons learns of his terminal, inoperable health condition, his desire to form a genuine friendship causes him to take a relatively green performer under his wing as his opening act.
When Ira is in his room right before George (Adam Sandler) picks him up in the limo there is a poster of The Green Hornet on the wall. Seth Rogen goes on to play The Green Hornet in the 2011 film, The Green Hornet (2011).
What exactly are we celebrating here?
Clarke invites Ira and George to watch the football finals from Australia, in a scene taking place in December. Australian football finals are played in September. In case of play-offs they may drag out into early October, but no later.
