COMEDY. Everything is going well at The Burgie Belter, a local fast-food restaurant, until Josh arrives for work and notifies his boss, Herb, that he will be quitting his job as a fry cook and moving to Chicago to take a job as a sportswriter. Upon hearing the news, Herb suffers a major midlife crisis and suddenly wants to leave his wife, children, and job as manager of The Burgie Belter to start a new life in Chicago as Josh’s “Uncle Herb.” But when Josh refuses to take Herb to Chicago, Herb retreats to his office where he strips off his fast-food uniform and is discovered moping about wearing only his T-shirt and boxer shorts. Worried that Herb has suffered a complete Burgie Belter breakdown, Josh decides to call upon the only person who can bring Herb back from the brink of madness―Herb’s no-nonsense wife. Audiences will adore the quirky characters in this hilarious “romantic” comedy!
