“A brilliant and moving movie that finds big laughs” (Bill Maher). Five severely injured American veterans from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars explore their wartime experiences and confront their disabilities through the healing power of comedy. Each is paired with a celebrated comedian—such as Zach Galifianakis, Lewis Black, B.J. Novak and Bob Saget—who mentors the budding stand-up on how to write and perform a solid routine. While also providing an insider’s look at how a stand-up set is developed, Comedy Warriors is a funny and heartwarming journey that culminates in a laugh-out- loud live performance event. “I love these brave soldiers and how brutally honest they are as comedians” (Adam Sandler).
