Directed by Paul Provenza
This killer-funny documentary from Paul Provenza produces more laughs than any hundred jokes you ever heard. Actually, it's all one joke — a massively dirty one — told by a hundred comics to Provenza and fellow funnyman Penn Jillette, who record their efforts on a cheap-ass camcorder. The participants run the gamut from the great Gilbert Gottfried at his most scary and outrageous to Bob Saget blowing his TV image as a dork, not to mention Billy the Mime (you heard me). These stand-ups on the spot tell the joke, take it apart and reveal why they use it as the gold standard to test what a comic is made of. Judge for yourself.
