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.
A man who lost his family in the September 11 attack on New York City runs into his old college roommate. Rekindling the friendship is the one thing that appears able to help the man recover from his grief.

George is a very successful stand up comedian who learns that he has an untreatable blood disorder and is given less than a year to live. Ira is a struggling up-and-coming stand up comedian who works at a deli and has yet to figure out his onstage persona. One night, these two perform at the same club and George takes notice of Ira. George hires Ira to be his semi-personal assistant as well as his friend. Written by
When George goes to talk to Ira at the deli, Ira is standing behind a dark red menu. When he walks away, you clearly see that one of the dishes listed is "chopped liver". See more »
When James Taylor is finishing his last song at the MySpace function, you can see he is sitting on a stool, alone, on stage. When he finishes and stands up, his back-up singers from earlier have suddenly returned. See more »
What do you get when you put a dried up comedian with a comedian who was never funny to begin with? FUNNY PEOPLE! The name itself cracks me up because it is the epitome of irony! Not only is the movie way too long and dry, it simply is not funny! If it weren't for Jonah Hill, there would be no humor at all. My God! What has happened and why does Apatow Industries Limitedly Unfunny keep trying this crap?! I dare say that if their is a target audience for this garbage, then the future is indeed bleak! Anyway, I watched this one with my fiancé. It reflected badly on me...be warned. Unless of course the amount of weed in your system outweighs your ability to even distinguish funny from not, then I say go for it! Hopefully it will be a memory that is lost in the hazy aftermath of multiple bong hits.
