Plot Summary
This documentary focuses on two stand-up comedians -- Jerry Seinfeld and Orny Adams -- whose careers are vastly different. Seinfeld is a veteran of the comedy trenches and is well-known for his TV sitcom, while Adams is a rising star in the business and who is nowhere near as successful. Both comics are in crisis, to some degree. Seinfeld wants to relaunch his standup career, and Adams wants regular gigs on the late-night TV circuit and eventually a sitcom.

    It's funny as hell, and like all comedy that stings, sorrowful at its core. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    Although respectful of its central subject, Comedian is not worshipful. Rather, it is curious about what in Seinfeld's hard-wiring allows him to maintain his equilibrium. show more
