Great concept, decent execution
2 January 2021 | by DrinkBathwaterSee all my reviews

Documental thrives on it's strong premise of comedians trying to not laugh at each other, but gets less funny as each season lingers on.

The psychology behind the show is quite fascinating. Some go the deadpan strait man route, some absurdist, some self-deprecating-there isn't one way to win. It's pretty apparent when a competitor is "trying too hard" to get a laugh, which is why many of the predictable props & costumes bomb hard in the later rounds.

Overall, there's some funny moments and you're likely to have a couple favorite comedians that you are rooting for by the time that it's over.
