Hilarious and So True
3 November 2017 | by peterevansmithesqSee all my reviews

I saw this documentary at a Film Fest in New Jersey. By far, this was the best of the entire slate of films. I laughed out loud in many parts, the rest of the time, I sat there with a huge smile on my face. The whole time, though, I was moved by Brett Eidman's story. There was a good story here, about a guy who loves comedy so much, that he is willing to do anything to make a living (or trying to make a living) making people laugh. Everyone can relate to this film's message, that if you are lucky enough to find something that you absolutely love, you should do everything you can to pursue it. Doing everything he can do with only whatever talent God gave him. We all do that. We all yearn to be this passionate about something. You can really see and completely understand Brett Eidman's love for what he does and can definitely understand his relentless pursuit of his dream. He is the every man, the underdog and we root for him from start to finish. Great film!
