The Comedian

Ed (Edward Hogg) is a stand up comedian in his early thirties; he is handsome charming, witty and lost. Trying to make it on the London comedy circuit, he spends his nights performing in small rooms above pubs and his days making ends meet at a call centre. Ed lives with Elisa (Elisa Lasowski) – a beautiful French singer, the two are like brother and sister – inseparable, loving and asexual. Ed is funny and playful, Elisa soulful and sensitive.
Ed meets Nathan (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett) a gorgeous young black artist – blunt, honest and free. They immediately connect and begin a passionate affair. Suddenly the intimate bond between Ed and Elisa is threatened as he is torn between his attraction to a man and his love for a woman.
