About this show

Nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, Grown Ups is an acerbic comedy in which a middle-aged journalist has finally grown up, only to find he's trapped in a world of emotional infants. Jake, a frustrated writer, struggles to set boundaries between his own family and his invasive parents, save a floundering marriage, and protect his daughter from an emotionally isolated childhood. In this transgenerational battle for recognition and validation, Jules Feiffer takes an unforgiving look at the maturity indicative of the adult. Painfully raw and embarrassingly honest, Grown Ups allows us to laugh with humility at the child in us all.
