Sometimes you kill. Sometimes you get killed. But no matter what, everyone dies the first time they go on stage.

Pryor Brice has always wanted to be funny. And now, he’s taken the plunge and started doing stand-up comedy. Unfortunately, his older sister – Ronan – wants her brother to stop daydreaming and focus on his future.

Pryor is determined to succeed…the only problem is: He totally sucks at stand-up. That is…until an accident changes everything, leading both Pryor and Ronan to discover comedy isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

KNOCK ‘EM DEAD is a supernatural horror about comedy, brought to you by writer Eliot Rahal (MIDNIGHT VISTA, HOT LUNCH SPECIAL) and artist Mattia Monaco.

KNOCK ‘EM DEAD #2

Pryor Brice died…but only for a couple of seconds.

The thing is, he didn’t come back alone. The spirit of Danny Baron, Pryor’s (more successful)

comedian friend, was brought back with him. Trapped inside Pryor’s body, the ghost of Danny offers Pryor a supernatural deal: He’ll write Pryor’s material so Danny can still be successful, even after death.

Their bargain comes with supernatural strings attached and, soon, Pryor will discover that comedy is no laughing matter.

KNOCK ‘EM DEAD #3

Pryor Brice has just killed an entire room full of people — because he just won a stand-up comedy competition!

Pryor should be on top of the world after his win, but he’s not. The spirit of his dead friend that’s trapped inside him has grown more powerful. Now Pryor is acting…differently. How do you exorcise a malignant spirit for bargain prices on such short notice? Well, all we can say is…thank God for the internet.

Pryor has gotten a taste of what it’s like to be special. To be on top. And he likes it. But after trading one spirit for another, the process of possession is beginning to take its toll on his body.

Meanwhile, Ronan has stepped up as Pryor’s manager and exorcist. The life that she has always wanted to live is in sight. Unfortunately, she can tell something is wrong with her brother. And when Pryor finally gets an opportunity for his first break at the big time, he and his sister must decide if another possession is worth it to take the shot.

KNOCK ‘EM DEAD #5

It’s the curtain call. Tonight, the people were so fine. They waited there in line. And when they got up on their feet, they made the show. And that was sweet. But I can hear the sound. Of slamming doors and folding chairs. And that’s a sound they’ll never know – oh, sorry those are the lyrics to Jackson Browne’s The Load Out. Whoops.

This is it. The final act. The last punchline. Fame has torn the Brice family apart. Can their love bring them back together?
