"Dying is easy. Comedy is hard."

PUNCHLINE is a charming comedy about Steven Gold, a New Yorker who is studying to be a doctor but has more interest in being a stand-up comic. He has the talent but is not able to handle the challenges that a performer's career presents. Enter Lilah Krytsick, a housewife who also wants to pursue her dream to be a comedian but needs some direction. Together they form a professional relationship and learn what it takes to make people laugh. Eventually they compete for a chance at the big time and even though Lilah wins, she backs out and chooses family instead. This opens the door for Steven to finally achieve his goal.
