Ten Dead Comedians
“Ten Dead Comedians is a funny and nail-biting front row seat to the bloodthirsty world of professional comedy ... and that's BEFORE the murders start.”—Daniel Kibblesmith, writer for The Late Show With Stephen Colbert
Dustin Walker was one of the biggest names in Hollywood — until one day he just walked away from everything. A decade later, he invites ten comedians to his private island retreat for a weekend of comic brainstorming. There's Billy the Contractor, a "blue collar" comic who performs with a Glock holstered on his waist "because the 2nd amendment says I can!" There's Janet Kahn, the aging Las Vegas icon famous for her nasty insults. There's even Orange Baby Man, the most-loathed prop comic in America. But within hours of arriving on a seemingly deserted Pacific island, these comics learn there is more to Dustin's offer than meets the eye — and soon the murders begin.
