American Loser is a comedy-drama based upon the experiences of comedian Jeff Nichols; it follows Jeff as he encounters a remarkable variety of personal and emotional problems.

Edging closer to his thirties Jeff (Seann William Scott) has a heavy drinking problem coupled with ADHD, dyslexia, and a mild case of Tourette syndrome as well as constant absent-mindedness. He spends most of his time attending support meetings including ones which have no connection to the problems he suffers.

Jeff pins the cause of his problems on his wealthy parents Cynthia (Deirdre O'Connell) and Mike (Denis O'Hare). After being evicted from the garage he rents, with nowhere left to go he manages to connect with Lynn (Gretchen Mol), a woman he met at a support group for people with relationship problems.
