A ragtag group of supremely unfunny comedians vie for a spot in an upcoming stand up comedy festival in the mocumentary style directorial debut of former Saturday Night Live and USA Up All Night contributor Glenn Rockowitz. The Diamond and Hutz talent agency is run by Lucius Diamond (Rockowitz) and Baxter Hutz (David G. Cohen) - two men who have no business being in the business of comedy. In addition to albino African-American male chauvinist Otis Jackson (Victor Varnando, Diamond and Hutz also represents such painfully unfunny comedians as wheelchair-bound wannabe funnyman Skully (Perry Wolberg), crude female comic Slappy (Angela Muto), age-of-consent eschewing Ed Sullivan impersonator John "Roachy" Galt (John Roach), and the Andy Kaufman-inspired conceptual comic Dhrupick (Mark Yuhasz). Upon learning of the upcoming Upstate Comedy Festival, the comically-challenged troupe enlists the aid of U.S. Comedy Corps head Arty Hittle (Jim Gaffigan) in preparing new material for the big show.
