About the Book
Terry Flaherty, 39, is a Bay Area standup comedian at a crossroads. Frustrated by his lack of upward mobility in the comedy scene plus the pressures as a husband and father, he is reassessing his career. Complicated relationships with his own father, siblings and his Irish grandfather add to his dilemma.

A unique opportunity to make it big in the entertainment world could be the break hes always wanted, but will he get it?

Set in the early 90s at the end of the first booming era of standup comedy, this is a coming of middle-age story.
