Docs: Hysterical (2021)

Fully ceding the microphone to its loquacious subjects, both onstage and offstage, Hysterical shines a spotlight on female comedians in a manner that illuminates both the occupational similarities they share with their male counterparts as well as the many unique challenges they face in carving out a career in stand-up comedy. Unflaggingly earnest and positive-minded, and undergirded by a deceptively simple structure, Hysterical nevertheless achieves a lot simply by giving expanded voice to a wide range of highly articulate creative types whose observations carry punchy, trenchant emotional truth.
