There are a lot of comedy documentaries out there in the world. Some of them are endlessly fascinating and offer a behind the scenes look at what comedians think about a topic. Others focus on one comedian’s origin story/search/climb/obstacle overcoming something. While others sometimes are just fun because a bunch of your favorite comedians talk about favorite things.
With that being said, we decided to come up with a list of comedy documentaries that specifically focus on a comedian instead of a topic in comedy. You can find Nine of these documentaries on on Netflix, one, you will not find (but its freely available on the internet). They’re worth putting in your queue and watching the next time you’d like to dive into comedian history.
