Samir Wassan (Kumail Nanjiani) isn't exactly making a killing in comedy, though life with his supportive girlfriend Rena (Amara Karan) appears to be going pretty well. But is it enough?

When a stand-up legend (Tracy Morgan) shows up at the comedy club and offers the struggling funnyman a clear path to success, Samir is quick to take the opportunity.

But as he soon discovers, the path to fame might also lead him directly into... The Twilight Zone.



The episode also stars Diarra Kilpatrick, as well as Jordan Peele as the Narrator.
