Comedian Movie Review Summary

Actors: Jerry Seinfeld, Orny Adams

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Comedian

Jerry Seinfeld made a hit with "Seinfeld", but after the cancellation he decided to return to his roots as a stand-up comic. In this poorly-edited documentary, we follow him as he talks to other comics and teaches a rookie-in-training called Orny Adams. We follow Orny as he goes from performing on Letterman to not getting many laughs in Montreal. Seifeld, meanwhile, has conversations with Chris Rock, Jay Leno, and Ray Romano. He also meets his hero, Bill Cosby. The problem with this film is that we don't see enough of Seinfeld telling jokes, and more of him travelling and chatting with his friends. Orny, meanwhile, is not funny at all, and we make you shout "We want Seinfeld!"
