In UK cinemas & On Demand on 16 June, 2017

Featuring a who’s who ensemble of comedy icons, including Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Amy Schumer, Kevin Hart, Jamie Foxx, Sarah Silverman, Jerry Lewis, Billy Connolly, Steve Coogan, Eddie Izzard, John Thomson, Frank Skinner, Jo Brand, Lee Mack, Omid Djalili, Stewart Lee, the late Victoria Wood and Garry Shandling, and many more, DYING LAUGHING is a candid look at the complicated and fascinating lives of some of the world’s greatest stand-up comedians.

A stand-up comedian must be the writer, the director and the star performer – and in stand-up there is no rehearsal, no practice, no safety net as it only works in front of a live audience, with feedback being instantaneous and often brutal.

For many baring their soul on stage and having an audience boo would be a life-changing trauma, for stand-ups it’s a regular challenge. Original interviews are interlaced with stunning footage of the road, the comedy clubs and the world from a stand-up’s point of view to reveal the lives of these remarkable artists.
