Development Pitch

Jayson is an older stand up comedian who got into comedy later in life after choosing to raise a family. He is now faced with a growing career and more demand on his life. Jayson is overweight and not as aggressive toward a career in entertainment as he was when he was younger but still believes he has what it takes to make it. He's going to have to put in a lot of work and discipline to compete with a much younger and active group of performers. This first episode is about a visit to the gym that made him question his sexuality.

About The Author

I am a stand up comedian that have decided to turn my jokes into a web series or story. This is my first episode but I am open to making it into more. I am experienced as a joke writer and still learning about script writing.
