Storyline

In the documentary, Comedy Warriors - Healing Through Humor, five severely wounded Iraq/Afghanistan veterans were given the opportunity to explore their experiences through the healing power of humor. This film follows their journey as they work with professional comedy writers, and A-List comedians: Zach Galifianakis, Lewis Black, Bob Saget, and B.J. Novak, who help them write and perform their own personal stand-up comedy routines. This exciting venture gives them new comedic perspectives from which to view their injuries and their lives, and culminates in one big night performing at LA's top comedy clubs. Written by Anonymous

Incredible film
12 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a big fan of documentary film, and this is one of my favorites of the last few years. The service men and women of the US go through quite a bit in their time serving they suffer physical and mental traumas few would understand. In this film comedy is used to help them get through their issues. Many candid moments between professional comics and these war veterans really make the film authentic, you can tell that these men need a form of therapy and the comedians help them to achieve that. Few stories manage to grab you from the start, and keep your attention until the end, but this one does. Documentary film making is supposed to transport you into another persons life, to help you understand their lives better, and this film does exactly that.
