Comedy Unlike Any Other
24 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

This was an awesome film that tells the story of the origins of a craft still used today. The comedy is timeless. You will learn so much from the people who invented and live it. The cast has the best stories to tell. John C. Brown and Bart Williams do an excellent job preserving the history of comedy. This award winning film will go on to do great things. If you are in the field of comedy or acting this is a definitely must see. It is a way to learn from the people who lived the art. Learn the history of the straight man and the funny man from the best. Some mild nudity. Not recommended for small children. If you have the chance to see it don't miss out!
