In this hyper-intelligent comedy, a journeyman comedian is lured to L.A. by a T.V. producer (J.K. Simmons, WHIPLASH) who wants to make him a reality star. As reality sets in, he must decide whether his legacy will be to tell jokes for a living or become the butt of them. With an all-star cast including Sarah Silverman, J.K. Simmons, Tig Notaro, Jim Jefferies, Doug Stanhope, and more, PUNCHING HENRY is a hilarious and heartwarming glimpse behind the curtain at the weird world of comedy.
