Our Time Written by Ken Levine. Our Time is a loosely autobiographical comedy about breaking into the world of comedy in 1975 Los Angeles. It was a golden era for comedy ?
sitcoms had come of age and ground breaking series like All in the Family, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and M*A*S*H filled the airwaves, the Comedy Store just began to blossom discovering such talent at David Letterman, Richard Pryor, and Freddie Prinze, Saturday Night Live premiered, and creative disc jockeys still reached millions of listeners.

Four young Baby Boomers come of age and try to find their place in this inspiring new world. They face levels of talent, degrees of desire, jealousy, confusion, competition, the sexual revolution, parental pressure, ego, insecurity, religion, discrimination, luck, struggle, and decisions that will affect the rest of their lives. Who will make it and who won’t?
