    More than 50 modern comedy legends candidly explore their motivations and inspirations in this hilariously unique examination of the age old question: do you really have to be miserable to be funny?

    A star-studded cast including Tom Hanks, Matthew Perry, Amy Schumer, Jon Favreau, Whoopi Goldberg, Lisa Kudrow, Steve Coogan, Jimmy Fallon and many more, dig into their earliest comic experiences, most epic fails and tell unforgettable anecdotes to reveal a performer's deep, and perhaps paradoxical, desire to connect with audiences.

    This master class in comedy offers a rare opportunity to hear comedy icons dissect the art of stand-up and explore how a joke can operate as a blunt tool, a social weapon, or even as a personal elixir. It reminds us that the best humour may be derived from misery, but that it's the comedian's particular brand of truth that helps us all understand a little better what it means to be human.
