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

Therapy through comedy
19 December 2013 | by magnumnashSee all my reviews

No matter if you support the current wars the US is involved in, you have to feel for and support the soldiers. The men and women who fight is wars, have a very tough road to come back to civilian life, they have been seriously injured both physically and mentally. In Comedy Warriors, five veterans have a chance to heal their wounds by getting up on stage and making jokes. This is why I love this movie so much. There is a major issue with soldiers who come back with issues that are unresolved, so I love seeing them work out their issues. It was especially interesting watching them do so while trying something new life stand up comedy. This is a truly amazing film, one to watch for sure, it is funny, honest, heart wrenching and up lifting.
