Summary
Jo Jo has it all--Hollywood stardom, movie roles, platinum records. But the price he pays for fame and fortune is too great.

Forced to examine his life, the film follows Jo Jo's compelling past through four decades from his upbringing in a brothel, to classic comedy performances in cellar nightclubs, to ultimate stardom as a rowdy, irreverent comic
