Crime. Addiction. Poverty. Gambling. Violence. Teenage runaways. Stupidity. It's a comedy.
Good Luck, Mr. Gorsky, the first novel by 3-time Emmy Award winning comedian Dave Konig, is The Bowery Boys
on speed in the wild, wild West Side of '80s NYC; cheap single-room occupancy hotels, crime, and Times Square sleaze. A more innocent time.
Three teenage runaways - naive Danny Fisher, street savvy Bobby Boyd, and Bobby's delusional artist brother James Boyd - form a wildly dysfunctional familial bond.
They dream, plot, and scheme to escape their misfit world through crime, art, and a little help from a clown's car full of deposed Ping-Pong champions, fat junkies, washed-up boxers, midgets, aging Nazis, and enigmatic movie stars.
Good Luck, Mr. Gorsky - a screenplay by Dave Konig based on his novel -
is currently earning raves in screenplay competitions.
