Being a comedian isn’t always funny business.
In the new trailer for the documentary “It’s Not That Funny”, some of comedy’s brightest stars open up about dealing with depression.
“All of us learn a skill set inherently as children that get[s] us through childhood,” says Sarah Silverman in the trailer. “One hundred per cent of comedians become comedians because somewhere in their childhood, they needed to be funny in order to survive.”
Along with Silverman, the film features interviews with Wayne Brady, Rainn Wilson, Neal Brennan, Rachel Bloom, Baron Vaughn, Chris Gethard, Rikki Lindholm and more.
“Everyone performs,” Brady says. “I cannot complain, because if I complain, strike me down.”
