'Misery Loves Comedy' Trailer: Kevin Pollak's Documentary About Comedians

Misery Loves Comedy is one of the films I wish I could have seen at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. It was presented as a special screening, slotted at a very inconvenient time all the way on the top of Main Street at the Egyptian. Thankfully, actor/comedian Kevin Pollak's documentary film was sold at Sundance to Tribeca Film, which will allow all of us to see it when it is released on iTunes on April 14th and in limited theaters on April 24th 2015. The documentary features over 60 famous funny people "featured in this hilarious twist on the age-old truth: misery loves company." Hit the jump to watch the Misery Loves Comedy trailer, and leave your thoughts int he comments below.

Misery Loves Comedy may not have the ultimate answer of the question as to whether or not you have to be miserable to be funny, but it does offer captivating insight into the mind of those who make us laugh, and maybe even a reflective look into our own minds as to why we find them funny, which could be a little scary.
