Having performed Stand-Up Comedy, this movie documentary hit close to my heart. Being on stage is a bit nerve racking at times. This movie shows both emotion and triumph for the performers. It allows the viewer a glimpse of what it takes to be a performer and the nervous energy that surrounds it. We as comedians all want to succeed and bring the crowd to laughter. It's the high that keeps us going.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Comedian - A Motivating Movie
From watching the Comedian starring Jerry Seinfeld, what I took home was it's not easy to be a comedian. Comparing that career to my career, which is a chemist, it seems that a comedian doesn't always have job security. Even if you establish yourself as a comedian, having a bad night telling jokes at a comedy club could seriously lower your profile. This fact is what worries comedians so much. Some comedians have emotional feelings after their performances or throughout their careers. Jay Leno has constant feelings that if he doesn't perform well, he may loose his job and become a lower paid worker. Orny Adams wants to be like Jerry Seinfeld and becomes emotionally angry at selected audiences in the film. Orny Adams is also self-centered in the film, I've noticed he starts his sentences with "I..." a whole lot and after he was listening to advice from a friend of Shapiro, he made fun of him in a bad way. Show business for a comedian is being able to do live performances well, not just talking but figuring out how to make the crowd laugh. Seinfeld felt that in some night clubs, the audience had nothing to laugh about. I like Seinfeld because he's not a weird comedian. He's a normal person making people laugh. Robin Williams is comparable. Someone like Tom Green or Stephen Colbert, these comedians don't compare. Anyway, Comedian is a good movie to watch. I was motivated because its a movie about how comedians struggle to be good. And you see how hard they work for it. One last thing, Orny Adams will be a very good comedian because he has ambition even though he seems self-centered. He should stop being self-centered when he starts to build more fame.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
