  • Summary: Trevor Newandyke is a struggling comedian and a pyromaniac. Not only does his act bomb on stage, but he bombs at everyday life, too. Fed up with threats from the cable company, Slurpee price hikes and all the jerks who think they can push him around, all Trevor wants is a break. But insteadTrevor Newandyke is a struggling comedian and a pyromaniac. Not only does his act bomb on stage, but he bombs at everyday life, too. Fed up with threats from the cable company, Slurpee price hikes and all the jerks who think they can push him around, all Trevor wants is a break. But instead of getting himself together or channeling his anger for his act, he turns inward, to the loud din of his headphones and the crackling glow of fire to ease his mind. [Factory 25] Expand

    Acutely nailing the dysfunctional stand-up milieu both on- and off-stage, the micro-budgeted film is more a wryly-etched character sketch than an involvingly-plotted proposition, but it still manages to leave an impression thanks to Joshua Burge’s convincingly-inhabited lead performance.
