An improvisational comedian in 1960s San Francisco who struggles to find success while remaining creative and true to his own vision.

An early improvisational film, made outside the Hollywood mainstream of the late 1960s. One of the earliest known examples of the "New Hollywood" cinema, the film was shot from notecard ideas rather than a script. Featuring performances by the San Francisco-based improvisational comedy group The Committee, founded by Alan Myerson.

Set and shot on location in San Francisco, principally in a barn owned by Korty—an inspiration for George Lucas and Francis Ford Coppola, who soon thereafter would establish studios in the Bay Area.
