Alone Up There: Stand Up Comedy Documentary Gets It Right - Famous Comics Open Up
Sean Patrick Shaul's new stand up comedy documentary: Alone Up There explores what it means to be a comedian with candid and honest interviews with a diverse range of comedians including Marc Maron, Alonzo Bodden and Iliza Shlesinger.
They Killed It Productions, Inc. is proud to present Sean Patrick Shaul's new documentary ALONE UP THERE - a firsthand journey to understand one of the most difficult art forms.
The stand-up comedian is both an artist and an artisan: painstakingly developing a persona, scripting and editing an act, and, as often as not, revising it on the spot to suit the energy of a given audience. If the audience does not grasp the countless hours crafting the routine, and the empathic micro-calculations of the performance, then the act was a success… well, as long as it was funny.
ALONE UP THERE is a feature length documentary that explores the contemporary culture of stand-up comedy with a focus on the performer. Using interviews with several professional comedians and experts ALONE UP THERE asks the questions: “What kind of person can do standup?” and “What kind of person would want to?”
Contains interviews with:
Peter Anthony, Matt Billon, Alonzo Bodden, Mark Breslin, Eddie Brill, Claire Brosseau, Kelly Carlin, Jerry Corley, Roman Danylo, Greg Dean, Marke Driesschen, Darren Frost, Erik Griffin, Toby dmpep Hargrave, John Heffron, Jeremy Hotz, Ron James, Danielle Kasen, Moshe Kasher, Simon King, Darryl Lenox, Richard Lett, Jay London, Mike MacDonald, Donovan Patrick Mahoney, Marc Maron, Joe Matarese, Rick Overton, Eddie Pepitone, Paul Scheer, Iliza Shlesinger, Randy and Jason Sklar, Bobby Slayton, Brody Stevens, Ryan Stout, Jeff Ullrich.
