World’s Greatest Dad(?)
In “World’s Greatest Dad(?),” Jimmy Carrane tells one man’s story of losing a dad and becoming a dad in the same year. After ten years in group therapy, Jimmy is still unhappy that he is not as famous as some of the people he started out doing improv with. So when his therapist suggests that Jimmy and his wife have a baby to bring more joy into their life, Jimmy sets out to become a first-time dad at age 52, at the same time that his own father is dying. From fertility treatments to a disastrous funeral, Carrane takes us on a funny and poignant roller coaster of life and death and shares his discovery that you don’t have to be the “greatest” to be a good dad.
