    We hear plenty of engaging anecdotes, though, taken together, they don't do much to illuminate a subject that has been thoroughly explored elsewhere ...

    Are they miserable? No; everyone seems to be having a great time. Are they funny? Um, not so much.

    For the most part ... this is a pretty safe discussion about a very unsafe art form. We can only imagine what's in the outtakes.

    An evident labor of love and also a work of grating amateurism.
    April 23, 2015

    While genial and never dull, the film is all over the place, a classic example of trying to do and say too much.

    While there's no single, monumental insight here-no a-ha moment that cracks the code of comedy-there are a ton of stories and opinions that comedy nerds should love.

    It's a decent enough film for comedy buffs though there aren't a whole lot of surprises.

    Do you have to be sad to be funny? You'll have to sit through a slew of micro-anecdotes and shop talk before you get any answers from this choppy documentary - longer than any decent comic would defer a punchline.

    If only he had probed a bit deeper, and widened his scope beyond the predominantly white, male subjects (including our own Rob Brydon, Steve Coogan and Stephen Merchant), this could have been a fascinating film as well as a funny one.

    Overall, what we get is a relentless conveyer belt of talking heads, earnestly dissecting their profession.

    If comedy is tragedy plus time, is stand-up comedy a kind of higher math used to survive that equation?

    San Diego Union-Tribune

    With so many subjects, it's obvious the director is going for quantity, but it doesn't work (especially the scenes with Matthew Perry; a funny actor is much different from a professional stand-up). The overall tone feels scattered and self-important.
