Matt loves stand-up. He’s studied the best. He spends hours writing new gags. So when his school runs a tallent contest, of course he’s going to enter.
Matt is about to learn what it takes to be really funny. He’s studies the world’s best stand-ups, he’s a brilliant armchair critic – but now it’s his turn to jump on stage. When classmate Kitty Hope offers to coach him, his routine really starts to shine. Matt dares to believe his dream could become reality. As one gig follows another, it’s not long before he’s prepping for the biggest gig of all.
What he doesn’t count on is; last minute total meltdown, his best mate pulling out zero seconds before going on, Teeny tiny Kitty Hope and her bonkers ambitions, his stepdad’s ‘hilarious’ funny ideas and, headmaster, Meredith Pavey, who very definitely has it in for him.
