The game sees the player, an agent, try to book an up-and-coming comedian for the late-night Johnnie K. Show. They enter the improve club The Improv to interact with the local patrons to try to book a client. It has a point-and-click interface. If the player makes an error, they are transported to the 'Curse of the CD ROM Hallways' where they must complete a minigame before returning to the action.

The game was made using QuickTime,[1] has a point and click interface, and contains 360 degree rotatable motion on each screen.[2]

GameRevolution deemed it a "well-intentioned but utterly hopeless comic romp".[1] Coming Soon Magazine suggested that while the game would suit a stand up aficionado, it lacked enough interactivity to be a serviceable adventure game.[3]
