Jerry Seinfeld is again working as a stand-up comic. COMEDIAN is the unique and engaging look at what it took for him, and by extension every stand-up, to get there. Neither a concert film, nor a biographical documentary, COMEDIAN closely examines the birth of a comedy act and offers a window into the details of backstage life and the challenge of making people laugh.
It was shot on two hand-held digital video cameras by director Christian Charles and producer Gary Streiner, who followed Jerry Seinfeld from club to club every night he performed, following him for well over a year to enable them to make COMEDIAN.
