  Dying Laughing [read more]
  Stand up and be counted
  Stand-up comedy icons Jerry Seinfeld, Amy Schumer, Kevin Hart, Jamie Foxx, Billy Connolly, Steve Coogan, Eddie Izzard, Jerry Lewis, Chris Rock, Sarah Silverman, Frank Skinner, Jo Brand, Frankie Boyle, John Thomson and the late Garry Shandling and Victoria Wood among many others, feature in the new critically acclaimed film Dying Laughing which will be released in UK cinemas and On Demand from 16th June 2017.

Directed by Paul Toogood & Lloyd Stanton and distributed by Gravitas Ventures, Dying Laughing received glowing reviews when it premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival before going on to a hugely successful release in the US, seeing it sustain the #1 position on the US iTunes chart.

A stand-up comedian is mostly his or her own writer, director and star performer. Unlike any other art form, there is no safety net and no private rehearsal. In its singular realisation, stand-up comedy only works live on a stage - in front of often hostile audiences. For most people baring their soul and being heckled would be a life-changing trauma, for stand-ups it's a nightly hazard.

Directors Paul Toogood & Lloyd Stanton achieve a startling level of intimacy in a series of riveting interviews with many masters of the comedy universe, allowing in-depth access to the emotional and psychological highs and lows of answering the call to become a stand-up comedian.
