Richard Lewis: I'm Exhausted
- movie Description
Richard Lewis: I'm Exhausted is a 1988 comedy that mixes the comedian's trademark dark humor in a stand-up routine with skits co-starring celebrities Garry Shandling, Larry King, Jackie Collins and Steve Allen. Lewis brings his depressed and bitter view of the world, familiar to audiences from "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and his appearances on the talk show circuit, to this hour-long film. Lewis visits many of his familiar topics, such as his dysfunctional, Jewish upbringing that made their family tradition one of misery. He mocks his own depressive personality as he describes his lifelong battle with hypochondria, holidays and hopelessness. He also jokes about his inability to maintain a romantic relationship, his low self-esteem, the horrors of growing up in New Jersey pre-Bruce Springsteen and the stupidity of pursuing success in Hollywood. Lewis also touches on more every day topics that stir his anger, from plane travel, baseball and how aging makes idiots of us all. Bruce Gower directs this classic example of Lewis humor.moreless
