After losing his wife to cancer, comedian Charlie Hammond must try to move on with his life. Between regular shows at the Laugh Riot Comedy Club and a potential film venture with Fox UK, Charlie almost seems to have everything set up for himself.
But he doesn't. His agent Peter seems slightly more interested in money than quality, and Charlie's adoring fan Pepper seems to be gradually stealing his limelight. Jennifer Beckett, VP for Fox UK, is pressuring Charlie more and more to get the film project off the ground, and then there's Miles Caldwell, chief theatre critic for The Guardian who seems to hate Charlie no matter what he does. In fact, there's only one person who hates Charlie more than Miles.
And that is Charlie himself.
And without Susan around to keep him grounded, Charlie seems stuck in a downward spiral with no way of getting out...
The Cast and Crew of callback created a fundraising event in collaboration with LUCI (Lancaster University Comedy Institute) and Lancaster Arts Bar to raise money for two amazing Charities: Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund and Dorothy House Hospice Care. All money raised at the event and proceeds from the shows (Including Programmes, Tickets and Donations) were split equally and used, totalling a grand amount of £1121.51!
