Comedy. The only business where you can die one night only to kill the next. Shot over an unprecedented 18-month period in noisy college cafeterias smoky Toronto backrooms legendary Los Angeles nightclubs and at Montreal's Just For Laughs the world's largest comedy festival The Next Big Thing tracks the budding careers of six young stand-up comedians. No staged reality show this unique documentary series gives an insider's look at the competitive world of stand-up where we meet a cadre of casting agents managers television executives and yes parents. Six young comics are eager to follow in the footsteps of fellow Canucks Jim Carrey Mike Myers and Martin Short who have made it big in Hollywood. From self-deprecating observations and stilleto-sharp social commentary to shocking jaw-droppers their humour takes no prisoners; fast food cell phone companies immigration weight loss babies and of course s-e-x are all fair game. We share in their anxieties as they wonder why the same joke bombs one night but charms the next. Or what talent scout might be sitting in the audience? Comedy it turns out is a very serious business!System Requirements:Running Time 165 Mins.Format: DVD MOVIE Genre: COMEDY Rating: NR UPC: 014381333428 Manufacturer No: ID3334NFDVD
