Jerry Seinfeld is once again a working standup comic. A 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.... as Seinfeld, like all working comics, embarks on a neverending mission to answer the question "where does comedy come from?" and carve out the second act in his already highly successful career.
