    Synopsis

    A firsthand journey to understand one of the most difficult art forms.

    The stand-up comedian is both an artist and an artisan: painstakingly developing a persona, scripting and editing an act, and, as often as not, revising it on the spot to suit the energy of a given audience. If the audience does not grasp the countless hours crafting the routine, and the empathic micro-calculations of the performance, then the act was a success... well, as long as it was funny.

    ALONE UP THERE is a feature length documentary that explores the contemporary culture of stand-up comedy with a focus on the performer. Using interviews with several professional comedians and experts ALONE UP THERE asks the questions: "What kind of person can do standup?" and "What kind of person would want to?"
