WATCH TRAILER



Don’t miss this touching, funny and often challenging documentary film featuring five severely wounded veterans who embark on a new and ardous journey from injury to health through comedy with help from of the best in the business: Lewis Black, Zach, B.J. Novak and Bob Saget. Who better to teach them than Jewish comics steeped in a tradition of enduring unthinkable pain through humor? These wounded warriors candidly share their poignant life stories and the role that laughter plays in their rehabilitation. Join them as they write and perform their acts, which culminates in live performances at top Los Angeles Comedy Clubs: The Improv and the Laugh Factory. Equal parts profane and profound, it’s a movie that you won’t soon forget.
