After winning the lottery, Earl (Jason Lee), a man who’s taken one too many wrong turns on the highway of life, experiences an epiphany and decides to change his life for the better.
To do this Earl writes a list of all the people he has wronged in his life and sets about righting these misdeeds. Earl’s quest to cleanse his karma takes him back into his shady past where he’s forced to deal with the people whose life he’s touched … albeit with his slightly grubby hands.
There are many charachters who travel the highway of life with Earl, there’s Randy, his loveable and not entirely dimwitted brother, his unsophiticated “Trailer Trash” ex-wife Joy. Joy’s now married to Darnell (Earl’s bestfriend) who impregnated Joy whilst Joy was still married to Earl and he works at ‘The Crab Shack’ and we can’t forget the beautiful and sassy Catlina, the object of Randy’s affections.
Everybody is a winner watching MY NAME IS EARL on THE COMEDY CHANNEL.
