Too Soon: Comedy After 9/11
Matt Roush says...
In one of the more unusual retrospectives of the 2001 tragedy, this documentary explores the tricky business of making comedy in the wake of a cataclysmic event that many feared had made humor impossible if not dangerous to attempt. How soon is too soon? Comedians look back at how they navigated this potentially career-threatening tightrope while edging toward a time when late-night comics and Saturday Night Live would help show that laughter can be a healing tonic. Among the outspoken talents interviewed: David Cross, Janeane Garofalo, Marc Maron, Aasif Mandvi, Nathan Lane, Gilbert Gottfried, Cedric the Entertainer, Lewis Black, Chris Kattan and more.
