Jerome Stevens makes people laugh for a living. Or he tries to… The stand-up circuit is a world of extremes where money talks, agents slither and hecklers throw mince pies. It's hard to balance the demands of touring with family life – especially when Jerome is a star everywhere except his own home and his seven-year-old son is his biggest critic. Follow Jerome as he moves from the blind terror of a first open spot to being hounded out of Wales by an angry mob of brewery staff. As he chases the elusive beast that is laughter, meet violent bouncers, paranoid celebrities and humourless producers all competing to milk the comedy cash-cow. But exactly who is having the last laugh when he finds himself thrown into a Chinese prison? Fizzing with the one-liners and surreal humour for which Milton Jones is famous, this is an authentic, hilarious story of the life of a stand-up comedian, written by the real deal.
