Storyline

The Joke Thief takes us on a journey of one man's last hurrah. Simon McCabe is a stand up comedian who has been making people laugh for 35 years. All his life he has been the life of the party, but now he is tired, miserable and almost washed up since he's never got a lucky break due to a reputation of joke stealing. One faithful night, his longtime friend and fellow comedian convinces a comedy club owner to give Simon some stage time and one last shot at redemption. On the ride down to his gig, Simon takes us on a whirlwind journey of his life, as he replays back special moments in an emotional series of flash backs that made him the sad, funny man that he is today.

The "cinematic universe of Frank D'Angelo"!!!
15 May 2019 | by cjamesdueckSee all my reviews

Ridiculous. Frank puts up fake reviews for all his movies. I'm actually kind of in awe of the delusional confidence this total goof must possess to keep doing this. Calling his fake movie career "wannabe goodfellas" would be far too kind. This is not filmmaking, it's literally the equivalent of an old, chubby guy with gross fake hair doing a sopranos impression in the bathroom mirror for two hours. And he's supposed to believably portray a comedian in this one!? As a Canadian I have to do my part and assure the world that we as a country apologize for this garbage, and for unleashing Frank D'Angelo on you. God help us all. My review for "The Neighbourhood" could suffice for this "movie" (and anything else he does, I would imagine).
