the second they step off is when the real show begins. The storylines
are based on actual events that have taken place not only on their
wildly successful Comedy Get Down arena tour, but throughout the 25 plus
years each has been a nationally headlining comedian. A workplace comedy
at its core, the 30-minute, single-camera series explores the personal
and professional relationships of these five comic titans as they
navigate the challenges of life on the road: seedy venues, racist road
managers, pushy wives, angry baby mamas, obsessive fans, demanding
celebrities, shady politicians and more.
