The tumultuous lives of stand-ups get their due in the new comedy Against The Wall. Based on playwright Charlie Mount's real-life experiences working as a comedian in New York, this theatrical premiere follows volatile young funny man Jeff, who turns to hostility in front of the mic when life stops having meaning away from it.
