Summary

Brendan Shatwell is a 28-year-old virgin who lives at home with his parents. He's a bit of a geek, but the kid's got spunk and he's going to need it when his father lays down the law: he has a month to get a job, or he's out on his ass on the street. Brendan's adventures take him through a series of failed jobs; along the way he's helped out by his even nerdier friends. He's also helped out by his alpha-bro Uncle who helps him see his inner badass and scores him a job at his father's company. However, Brendan soon realizes he might be in over his head...

Manbaby is an over-the-top comedy that breaks the fourth wall and crosses lines of good taste while satirizing the infantile nature in all of us.

Peer Reviews

This is a very talented writer, lean, sharp, lively dialogue and action, obviously experienced and confident and definitely going somewhere in the industry. This is an ambitious, daring and hilarious piece of writing that walks the jagged edge between inappropriate and inadmissible.

Brendan who ultimately sells the story and takes the audience with him on his journey is a real triumph. You've balanced him perfectly and that's so hard to do wit...
