Rating: 4/5 -- There's nothing radical about this comedy doc's talking-head format, but it's a sharply edited masterclass with a formidable roll call: Seinfeld, Silverman, Rock, Coogan, dozens more. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- By juxtaposing the monochrome talking heads with colour snapshots of life on the road, the co-directors convey something of the agony and ecstasy of a potentially soul-destroying vocation. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- The movie kicks off poorly, with a battery of familiar conceits from big stars. Full Review

Rating: 1/5 -- Subject after subject - joke-crafting, set-building, room-running, dying on stage, living on the road, etc. - gets treated with bloodless abstraction by people who tell funny, engaging stories about their experiences for a living. Weird. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Dying Laughing does a great job in highlighting the highs and the lows of the profession, but where the film doesn't get it 100% right is by offering very little background on each of their interviewees. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5 -- Dying Laughing cuts through the stage persona and finds the humanity behind the jokes. Full Review

Pared down, this overcrowded movie could be a teaching tool in a comedy school. But as one comic after another recalls triumphs, misadventures and painful lessons learned, the stories become redundant. Full Review
