Description

THE COMEDY MAN is a 1964 British kitchen sink drama directed by Alvin Rakoff, featuring a performance from Kenneth More critics hailed as his finest work. With a superior supporting cast in Cecil Parker, Dennis Price and Billie Whitelaw, THE COMEDY MAN depicts the life of a struggling actor in Swinging London. Fired from his job in repertory theatre after seducing the producer’s wife, Chick Byrd (Kenneth More) moves to London. At 40 years old, he realises this is his last chance to make it as an actor. After moving into digs in London with Julian, a fellow actor, Julian’s career soars after a successful screen test, but Chick’s meets with continued failure. After a tumultuous event, Chick finally gets a break and finds the fame he has always craved, but even with a bank balance, celebrity and settled way of life, Chick needs to finally face the truth.
