#105. I Am Comic - Review

I Am Comic film poster

I Am Comic promised to be an insightful look into the psychologically dark world of stand-up comedy, and why comedians feel the need to make you laugh. Is it insecurity that drives them? Surely there are some self-esteem issues if you dedicate your entire life to standing up on a stage in front of a room full of strangers and try and earn their love and admiration. Well, I Am Comic does very little digging, and instead offers yet another half-assed documentary of behind-the-scenes footage of comedy clubs and a myriad of interviews with the comedians inhabiting them. I was let down by this doc, and like Darkon, I hope there is a filmmaker out there willing to take advantage of all the rich substance in the subject.

I agree, I was totally let down when I watched it. I wanted to laugh and to be let into this secret world of how they twist their reality into humor...but it was just blah.
