The Big Show with Tommy Le Van. Tommy is on the run. From his parents. Crazed babies. An over-excited Lamaze coach. A man on stilts. A nearly retired game show host. Police. Talking storks. A mover with a panty fetish. A bus driver named The Tip. And while they're all chasing him, he's running after his ex-girlfriend, trying to get her back in the hopes that everyone else will go away. Around and around they go. And if Tommy stops he won't be able to say no. If he stops moving he'll have to settle down. Get a real job. Buy a house. Get a bank loan to pay off renovations on a deck. Have a kid, raise it, and watch the whole process begin again. The cast of characters wants to make sure this happens. Tommy's a disruption to their ordered lives. He has to be assimilated back into the system before anyone else begins to question their role. They must get Tommy. So Tommy has to keep moving. He stumbles through conversations. Falls on his face. Gets lost. But still he keeps moving. Stuck in a surrealist world that is a modern day city, however chalk full of over-the-top citizens. The chase is on.
