Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: An evident labor of love and also a work of grating amateurism. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Apr 23, 2015

Rotten: Whatever it might take to get these admittedly very funny people to truly bare their souls, Pollak doesn't appear to have found it. – Geoff Berkshire, Variety, Jan 23, 2015

Rotten: We hear plenty of engaging anecdotes, though, taken together, they don't do much to illuminate a subject that has been thoroughly explored elsewhere ... – Glenn Whipp, Los Angeles Times, Apr 30, 2015

Fresh: What might have turned out to be a movie about comedy only for comedians is instead a funny and engaging look at the most twisted and naked branch of the entertainment world. – Jordan Riefe, Hollywood Reporter, Apr 17, 2015

Great insight into comedy

Comedy as a way of life

Kevin Pollak has done almost everything in show business; stand up,acting, podcasting and now directing. This is a great,insightful look at comics and just funny people who have spent their lives trying to get people laugh. It is much more than just a survey look ; it offers some really touching observations of what makes the comics who and what they are and is a must for anyone who enjoys
understanding the human condition.

Very good look at comedy

This was outstanding. I heard about this from Kevin Pollak's interview on the Anthony Cumia Show and am glad I bought it.
