Backstage at the Max Price Show, a popular 1950’s comedy-variety TV show, the ratings might be down, but the zingers and one-liners are flying fast! The writers struggle to work through each other’s egos, idiosyncrasies, and neuroses, while the stress of slipping ratings is going to Max’s head.
Neil Simon uses his big break on Sid Caesar’s “Your Show of Shows” to craft a hilarious, semi-autobiographical, account of the creation of some of television’s classic comedic moments.
