It’s only funny until someone gets hurt.
Meet Lenny Freeman, a man whose dream of being a comedian becomes a nightmare.
Bloody Disgusting has an exclusive clip from Middle Man, opening nationwide on June 9, 2017, featuring “The Walking Dead’s” Josh McDermitt.
“I play T-Bird, the loud, foul-mouthed, misogyny fueled, top rated standup comedian in the town of Lambone,” McDermitt tells Bloody.
“People should see Middle Man for the same reasons I wanted to make it: It’s funny, quirky and different, and Jim O’Heir is brilliant.”
“Lenny Freeman’s dream of being a famous comedian is about to become a nightmare. Not only is he stuck in a dead-end accounting job, Lenny has a bigger problem — Lenny is not funny. When his mother suddenly dies, he quits his job and heads to Vegas in search of fame. But along the way, a mysterious hitchhiker lures him into a desert-town killing spree with dark and twisted results – as the bodies pile up, Lenny becomes funnier and funnier.”
The film is written and directed by Ned Crowley (“Parting Words”), and produced by Bill Fortney and Roger Petrusson. Middle Man also stars Andrew J. West (“Geek”, “The Walking Dead”), and Anne Dudek (“Mad Men”).
