A dark, twisted, evil, insane … buddy comedy.
Lawrence is an ever-optimistic suit salesman for whom everything always goes right – until he meets Holloman, a cynical and suicidal credit collector, and everything starts to go wrong. Very wrong.
Is happiness determined by our outlook on life? Or can our destiny be changed … by another.
Funnier than Friends, blacker than The Office, Lawrence & Holloman is a wicked comedy.
