Actor Kevin Pollak is ready to get inside the minds of stand-up comics with the documentary film Misery Loves Comedy. Becky Newhall, Burton Ritchie, and Ben Galecki are producing the film which is set to feature Michael Ian Black, Rob Delaney, Jon Favreau, Paul Feig, Jim Gaffigan, Christopher Guest, Penn Jillette, Richard Kind, Lisa Kudrow, Richard Lewis, Jason Reitman, Andy Richter, Bob Saget, David Wain, and more.
 
Discussing the project, Pollak stated: “My hope is that we shed all new light on the pain behind the humor, but also uncover more about the minds and hearts of comedians than any of us think we know.”
 
The documentary will include interviews with comedians, “day-in-the-life sequences, archival and historic footage and photos, observations, essays and insights to explore why a person gets on stage in front of a room full of strangers when, in fact, public speaking is all other Americans’ #1 fear, even above death.”
