*There’s a new documentary on stand up comedy called DYING LAUGHING and it opens in theaters and on-demand this Friday, February 24. But we’ve got an exclusive sneak peek for you right now.
Check out the clip above featuring Jamie Foxx and Kevin Hart.
DYING LAUGHING is a candid look at the complicated and fascinating lives of some of the world’s greatest stand-up comedians. A beautiful, moving, funny and unique feature length documentary on the agony and the ecstasy of making people laugh.
A stand-up comedian must be the writer, the director and the star performer – and in stand-up there is no rehearsal, no practice, no safety net as it only works in front of a live audience, with feedback being instantaneous and often brutal.
For most people, baring their soul on stage and having an audience “boo” at you would become a life-long trauma, but for stand-up comedians, it’s a nightly challenge. The funny and heartfelt documentary contains original interviews interlaced with personal footage of life on the road – all from a comedian’s point of view.
Once you take this step behind the curtain, you will never look at these funny folks the same way again.
