MPAA rating: Not rated.
It is a candid look inside the agony and ecstasy of making people laugh for a living. A stand-up comedian must be the writer, the director, and the star performer. There is no rehearsal, no practice, and no safety net when they are in front of a live audience. For most people, baring their soul on stage and having an audience "boo" at them would become a life-long trauma, but for stand-up comedians, it's a nightly challenge.

Trash, poor quality video in black and white with some color. Summary shows color. Maybe I should have done a fast forward. Foul language. Watched for 5 minutes.

Very sad look at funny people, some well known, some not. I wanted to like this documentary because the idea of understanding what makes stand-up comics do what they do is intriguing. But the monotony of talking heads was boring and repetitive. To sum it up--- I fell asleep.
