Jo Jo Dancer, Your Life Is Calling (1986)

R 05/02/1986 (US) Drama 1h 37m

A comic with one eye on his audience and another eye on the truth.


Although Jo Jo Dancer has achieved success as a stand-up comedian, he hasn't found happiness. After receiving severe burns in a narcotics-related incident, Jo Jo remains in a coma, and, while in this state, he looks back on his life. Drifting off into memories of his troubled childhood, Jo Jo revisits his youth, recalling his eventual rise to fame and the decadence that followed. As he considers his existence, he must decide if he wants to go on living or not.
