Los Angeles Times - 11/22/1991
"...Determinedly weird and frequently funny....THE DARK BACKWARD is a work of real craftsmanship that builds well and boasts superlative production design..."

Product Description:

A nerdy garbageman has major aspirations of becoming the next Jay Leno but his agent thinks he is the worst stand-up comic there is. Meanwhile, he must contend with a mysterious bump that appears on his back from which a human hand sprouts. He parlays this into his stand-up act and his talent agent is singing another tune.

Plot Synopsis:

Judd Nelson is Marty Malt, a geeky garbage man who moonlights as a stand-up comic. Sadly, Marty Malt's career in comedy hasn't brought him much success but when he develops a rare deformity, it might give him the extra edge he needs to be a main attraction.
