Storyline

The Unbookables is a narrative documentary about stand-up comics who have spent their careers pushing limits--on stage and off. Relegated to small venues and touring in a crappy van through the Midwest they careen between the desire to succeed and the reality that there may be nothing left to lose. Road life is far from glamorous: comics come and go and cruel pranks and hard drinking punctuate their obsidian dark comedy on stage. They succeed and fail-spectacularly. When they face being fired for going too far on stage, the conflict culminates in a showdown: compromise or double down? Written by Jeff Pearson

Is this meant to be funny?
9 June 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a documentary about a few pathetic middle aged men travelling around in a van and drinking and acting like teenagers. They turn up for shows which they have apparently written no material for and the audiences hate them. Are they making a living from this? I've been to a few free comedy nights and open mic nights and never seen anything this bad. It was just really depressing to watch. These sad men seem to have no self awareness at all. It's not even funny while being dumb and rude and disgusting like the way Jackass is funny and you really like all their personalities (apart from Preston), I hated every one of these guys and me or any one of my friends could get on stage drunk any night of the week and put on a funnier show.
