Humour is not something you can learn - it's something that's in your bones. Well, that's what American comedian Tommy Fawkes' legendary dad George reckons anyway - and after a lifetime spent as a hugely popular funnyman, he should know. The trouble is that Tommy doesn't seem to have inherited his old man's talent - so he heads off to the English seaside resort of Blackpool to reinvent himself. But while searching for a new act to pass off as his own, he makes some startling discoveries that cause him to look at his father in a completely new light, in this vibrant comedy drama.
