Rating: 3/4 -- The first thing that a documentary about stand-up comedy ought to be is funny. Thankfully, I Am Comic succeeds handily on that count. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

I Am Comic Through bizarre backstage access and unbiased interviews, the film goes through the absurd world of the working comedian and reveals a crazy and laughable psychological profile of its practitioners. We also follow retired comic Ritch Shydners attempt to get back on stage after a thirteen-year hiatus. At the top of his game in the 1980s, Shydner had HBO specials, had shot five pilot TV shows and made multiple late night appearances but the big time baffled him. Equipped with the collective wisdom and nutty musings of over 80 of his peers, he gives it another shot. Does Ritch have what it takes to connect with todays young crowds and still get the laughs? I am Comic features intimate interviews with comedian icons such as Tim Allen, Louis C.K. and Sarah SIlverman. This Blu-ray features loads of additional featurettes and a hilarious music video.
