Cabbie/Comedian

Truth is, Richard hates navigating traffic so much that back in England he commutes to work via helicopter. So what better job is there for someone who loathes gridlock, than a gig as a New York City cabbie during Manhattan’s rush hour? Serving as Richard’s guiding compass — John McDonagh, a 35-year veteran behind the taxi wheel. John also takes Richard to his favorite lunch spot, Katz’s Delicatessen, where the two sit down to a meal at the famous “When Harry Met Sally…” table. From the taxi to the open mic — Richard attempts to take on the role of stand-up comic at top New York comedy spot, Gotham Comedy Club. There he must face what he fears most — a live audience.
