Description

A salty and silly comedy, brimming with shtick and slapstick! Rose’s closely guarded pickle recipe has kept Irv’s Deli a popular Michigan eatery for decades. And now her grandson, Joey, schemes to get the secret recipe and make a few much-needed bucks as his daughter’s Bat Mitzvah approaches. Featuring a stellar ensemble of character actors: Lynn Cohen (Sex and the City, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) plays matriarch Rose and guardian of the family secret; Toronto comic Jon Dore (Funny As Hell, Canadian Idol) is Joey; and hapless David Paymer (Quiz Show, City Slickers) is Uncle Morty, whose conniving plants the seed for Joey’s plot.
