From 1985 to 1989 Lou DiMaggio, no relation to baseball legend Joe DiMaggio, was a regular at the iconic “Catch a Rising Star” comedy club in New York City. For four years Lou worked along side of and made lasting friendships with a small group of comedians who are today some of the very best in the business. Larry David, Colin Quinn, Susie Essman, Joy Behar, Jeff Garlin, and Ray Romano are just a few of Lou’s old pals who appear in the film. After moving to Los Angeles in 1989 to pursue acting, Lou, in a mysterious act of career self-sabotage, stopped doing stand up comedy forever. But why? Today Lou is an Emmy winning writer for television. He makes a quiet, modest living but a deeply repressed passion for doing stand up is beginning to emerge. “Where Have You Gone Lou DiMaggio” follows Lou as he seeks advice from celebrity friends about returning to comedy while discovering along the way the real reason why he stopped doing stand up in the first place. After all this time, can Lou once again become relevant in the world of comedy?
