When Max gets blamed for pooping in the storeroom (which he did NOT do), tensions hit an all-time high between him and his terrifying teacher, Mr. Armstrong. But then the school principal suggests Max run for class president. Max isn’t the only kid on the ballot, his archenemy, Abby, is also up for election, and she’s out to defeat him at all costs. To win, Max is going to need the 24/7 help of his best friend and he’s going to have to run the campaign of a lifetime.

Max may not be the strongest, or the smartest, or the handsomest kid in his class --- but he may well be the funniest! Except when Max’s classroom joke lands flat, he suddenly becomes the Un-Funny Kid! The only way to make everyone forget Max’s comedy catastrophe is for him to win the town talent quest with his very own stand-up comedy routine. With the help of his best friend Hugo, Max thinks he has everything he needs to come up the greatest stand-up comedy routine of all time --- but will it be enough?
