Why do I love this so?

Comedian is a jazzy, raw, well-made documentary about the reality of pursuing (or continuing) a career in stand-up comedy...and the challenges that come with it.

This is the first time I really "got it." Seeing the anguish of these men (who I developed a whole new respect for as writers) fighting their own insecurity and bad feedback, to perfect - that is, be the absolute BEST at - their passion...which is making us laugh. And that craft is broken down to a science here, with many well-known comedians weighing in on the skill, and what it means to them.
