When a fire destroys Cobb's Comedy Club in San Francisco, defiant owner Tom Sawyer and his crew of comedians rebuild it, hoping to revive the struggling local comedy scene.

Jim Carrey, Dana Carvey, Paula Poundstone, Bob Saget, Ellen DeGeneres, Bobcat Goldthwait, Bill Maher, Kevin Pollak and more developed at this small club. David C. Schendel (Yank Tanks, 2003) documents the roller coaster ride to re-open the legendary independent venue and keep it open against all odds.
