'Misery Loves Comedy'

Hosted by

A new documentary looks deep inside the soul of comedy, featuring a long list of some of the world’s funniest people: Jimmy Fallon, Christopher Guest, Amy Schumer, and Marc Maron are all part of the lineup. The film does little to challenge the common wisdom that dysfunctional childhoods lead to successful careers in comedy, but it’s entertaining along the way. We hear from the filmmaker.
