Showboy Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Written and directed by co-stars Lindy Heymann and Christian Taylor, Showboy is a comedic mockumentary about a Hollywood writer trying to make it onto the Las Vegas stage. Real-life British filmmaker Heymann takes her documentary crew into Southern California to report on Britons working in Hollywood. She overhears Taylor (a real writer and producer for the HBO series Taylor) getting fired by executive producer Alan Ball. The documentary crew then follows Taylor to Las Vegas, where he proceeds to follow his dreams of making it as a star under the guise of doing research for a movie script. He rooms with veteran chorus member Erich Miller (then the star of the Vegas show Jubilee) and undergoes a series of dance lessons, auditions, and other humiliations. Features cameo appearances by Adrian Armas, Siegfried and Roy, and Whoopi Goldberg. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi
