A short time ago, Joe Montaperto was living the life. Enjoying the spotlight of the New York City comedy circuit. Performing with the likes of Jon Stewart and John Leguizamo. He was going to be a star. No doubt. Now, he sits in his old bedroom at his parent’s house in New Jersey having a rather one-sided conversation with his mysteriously ever present Napoleon statue at three o’clock in the morning. It is 1990, he’s just 30 years old, and he is rapidly losing his precious curly hair. And he’s afraid of napkins. The only time he laughs is watching old TV reruns of “Lost In Space”.
Disillusioned with his NYC stand-up comedy career, Joe makes a concerted attempt to reconcile madness with a intensive journey through spiritual teachings, social activism, and various dysfunctional relationships, only to discover, to his horror, that he can’t escape the catering industry.
