A fascinating look at standup
on September 30, 2010
As an up-and-coming standup comedian, I found this movie to be extremely interesting. As great as Jerry Seinfeld's "Comedian" was, this movie really digs deep into the life of a comedian. Clearly, standup is not for everyone, but those who do it (generally) absolutely love it. The movie talks with such greats as Tim Allen, Tom Arnold, Roseanne, Sarah Silverman, Bobcat, Jeff Foxworthy, and more. They share how they got started, hecklers, and those horrible gigs that every comedian dreads. If you're thinking of a life of standup, you may first want to look at this film. However, even if you just like standup and can appreciate what they do, you'll also enjoy this movie.
