Jim Breuer: And Laughter For All

TV-PG 2013 | 58 mins | Comedy Stand-Up EPIX Originals
Clear

We met him as the brash young comic who took Saturday Night Live by storm, with his killer Joe Pesci impression and the bizarre brayings of an original character called “Goat Boy.” Now Jim Breuer is all grown up, raising three daughters in the Jersey ‘burbs – and this whole marriage-plus-fatherhood thing has made him more hilarious than ever. As an added bonus, Breuer prides himself these days on crafting family-friendly routines... so no need to wait for the kids (or Aunt Edith) to hit the hay before you watch.
