REVIEWS

"One would hope that a film on comics would be fun and it is. For a film that comes in just under an hour, it takes you places, including the insides of the performers’ heads.” - Mike Leonard, THE HERALD-TIMES, Bloomington, Ind.

"It’s moving and thought provoking. The comics have such a raw drive to speak, be funny and connect with other human beings, almost completely outside the cultural value systems of conventional entertainment and success. They are so authentic and surprisingly thoughtful, even brilliant. The connection that (Seizer) makes with the performers is warm and appreciative... it is a wonderful achievement.” - Sarah Drury, Professor of New Media, Temple University

Road Comics  “is nice and tight, communicating the culture and unique comic and performative sensibilities of the three comedians. And it’s still really funny!” - Joshua Malitsky, Professor of Communication & Culture, Indiana University.
