Product Description
Through unprecedented backstage access and candid interviews, the film weaves through the absurd world of the working comedian and reveals a crazy and hilarious psychological profile of its practitioners. We also follow retired comic Ritch Shydner s attempt to climb back on stage after a thirteen-year hiatus. At the top of his game in the 1980’s, Shydner had HBO specials, shot five pilot TV shows, and numerous late night appearances (Carson, Letterman, Leno, etc.) but the big time eluded him. Equipped with the collective wisdom and nutty musings of over 80 of his peers, he gives it another shot. Does Ritch have what it takes to connect with today’s young crowds and still get the laughs? Guaranteed to make you watch.

More laughs per minute than most comedies this year. —Ain’t It Cool News

The movie is hilarious and I can’t say there was a soul in my super-packed screening not enjoying every moment thoroughly. —SLUG Magazine

A fascinating look at standup
By D. Surine on September 30, 2010
Format: DVD
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.
