The story begins at the height of Gleason s career. He has it all: women wealth and extraordinary power. But he is haunted by memories of his childhood. Gleason spends his formative years entering amateur contests performing in sleazy night spots. Along the way he steals gags from the best comics in town and finds love with Genevieve a dancer whom he marries. But Gleason isn t the ideal husband or even a responsible father as he abandons his family to answer the call of Hollywood.
