    • Synopsis
    • Opening in the seductive style of the sixties, A Funny Man uncovers the perennial loneliness that comedian Dirch Passer (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) has found himself in after a fast-tracked rise to fame.
      He struggles between his own desire to gain critical respect and servicing the audience’s needs. His talent is both a blessing and a curse – as he swallowed the instant adoration for his on-stage gags, Lommer (Lars Brygmann), his producer, and others around him feed off his success; a mélange of wealth, women, alcohol and infamy.
