Movie Summary

Director:
Michael Blieden
Released:
2007
Rating:
R
Comedians of Comedy, the first NetFlix funded film, debuted in 2005, featured comic geniuses Patton Oswalt, Brian Posehn, Maria Bamford, and Zach Galifianakas. The four aspiring entertainers are followed by a camera crew that catches many background situations and events that would not be viewed otherwise. Interestingly, the group of four amuse audiences from rock venues and college campuses, as opposed to the usual pubs and bars as venues. The four comics gain the spotlight as each of their best acts are relived throughout the 133 minute long documentary, which has given way to the Comedy Central television series that shares the same title. Overall, the documentary was welcomed from audiences and never did hit the big screen. On the contrary, this has become a "gateway film" for the four featured performers into larger roles. For a nice journey through the tour of these comedians, this film is certainly worth a watch.

    Part stand-up performance, part behind-the-scenes chit-chat, Michael Blieden's indulgent and often numbingly slow documentary follows four semiknown comedians.

    While there is a great deal of laughter among the quartet, there's scarcely a giggle in it for the audience.
