Dying Laughing is a behind-the-scenes look at the lives of stand-up comedians, where they get their inspiration, and how every night is not necessarily a good night no matter how experienced a comedian may be.
Featuring some of the funniest stand-up comedians including Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, and Sarah Silverman, this documentary provides a plethora of candid interviews in which these comedy geniuses (and many more) give insight into their careers. Living for the laughs and not just the money is illustrated as a driving force for most of these comedians.
However, drawing laughter from a crowd is not as easy as it may seem and these comedy professionals share their struggles to make a name for themselves, often using self-deprecating stories and learning to make fun of themselves. This film really dives deep into the serious side of making a career out of stand-up comedy.
