Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Pared down, this overcrowded movie could be a teaching tool in a comedy school. But as one comic after another recalls triumphs, misadventures and painful lessons learned, the stories become redundant.
Fresh: Even though they all tend to make the same points, the number of comics talked to and their widely diverse personalities and war stories insure that interest never flags.
Fresh: Though the engaging documentary treads through unavoidably familiar territory ... its chorus of testifiers often find sharp new angles of approach. Like the jokes they hone, many of their insights arrive with the impact of well-crafted punchlines.
Fresh: It's great and it's valuable and it's wonderful, because we love seeing and hearing these all-time greats talk about what they do with such passion and candor.
I Would Love To See This
I am very much looking forward to this documentary. Are there any pre-screenings? I'd love to see it in a theater.
What a cast!
Got a sneak peak at this. A really cool series of interviews w/ comedy all stars. Totally loved this. Very new perspective on comedy.
A must-have for any new comedian.
This beautiful documentary is a must-have for any new comedian. Doesn't matter if you're a storyteller, an observationalist, a political satirist, an alternative, or a surrealist, you'll find a lot of things in here that are useful. This is stuff the pros know. And even if you're a pro yourself, you'll probably hear a lot of friendly reminders. Most of all, these comics explain exactly why doing stand up is crazy... and how it can be one of the best things ever.
