Joey Miller (Jon Dore) is the undisputed king of Detroit party MCs. He’s also a single father and deeply in debt.  To make matters worse, during his latest one-of-a-kind wedding performance, his prized sound and lighting equipment was just destroyed in a freak accident.  To add insult to injury, his daughter Juiie’s Bat-Mitzvah is only four weeks away and she’s counting on him to MC the party.  Having exhausted all other options, he turns to his shady Uncle Morty (Academy Award® nominee David Paymer), who agrees to help him out under one condition: Joey must steal his grandmother Rose’s (the incomparable Lynn Cohen) most prized possession–her famous top secret dill pickle recipe she has vowed to take to her grave.
