coverYou wouldn't say Jerry Seinfeld's the richest comedian on earth from this documentary. He's shown at various US clubs, slowly accumulating an hour's worth of jokes. Surrounding him are colleagues, some famous (Chris Rock and Bill Cosby), some starting out, like Orny Adams, who comes across as an arrogant, insecure idiot who can't accept constructive criticism. The contrast between Adams ("I'm sorry, but this audience just sucked.") and Seinfeld ("I was nervous like the first time, back in 1979.") shows the difference between someone who likes to become famous telling jokes, and someone who has a job as a comedian.
