A heartfelt father-son comedy about a struggling playwright who is forced to move in with his joke-telling dad in a New Jersey retirement community and learns, as his father often says, “life’s going to happen, whether you smile or not.” Featuring Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Concords), Elliott Gould (MASH, The Long Goodbye), Bebe Neuwirth (Cheers), Annie Potts (Ghostbusters, Pretty in Pink) and singer Ingrid Michaelson.
Humor Me is Sam Hoffman’s directorial debut, inspired by his website Old Jews Telling Jokes, which also sparked an off-Broadway play, a bestselling book and a lecture series. Hoffman’s producing credits include CBS hit Madam Secretary and Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom.
