Billing for the movie NOT THAT FUNNY

Not That Funny is a simple story of how far a serious man will go for love. Stefan Lane claims he is  "alone but not lonely"—until the day Hayley Richmonde returns to the little town of Sierra Madre, California. Weary of her self-absorbed boss-boyfriend, Hayley says all she wants is someone who makes her laugh. Stefan, a man who is not that funny, tries to learn to be the man Hayley says she wants. In the process, they each find unexpected transformation.

Exploring a rare side of gifted comedic actor Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development, Chuck), this audience award-winner has deeper themes of acceptance, friendship, and risk-taking beneath its light-hearted surface.
