Marty Moore was a highly regarded and successful stand up comic until a serious incident at a gig brought his star crashing to earth.

Now he is relegated to D class gigs such as children’s parties and even then he fails to cover himself in glory.

Finally, as his career languishes at rock-bottom,  Marty receives a booking that could help him restore his credibility and re-establish his credentials. But in Marty Moore’s life nothing ever goes to plan.

Dying for a Laugh stars Australian Comedy legend Marty Fields.
