Dark Side of Comedy – Watch the trailer for the new documentary series

Comedy has entered a new golden age. Podcasts, social media, and streaming services have all created new life and new laughs for comics living and dead — comics who were once relegated to smoky nightclubs and finite network TV time slots. Similarly, a new generation of comics and comedy fans are reassessing the legacy of legends, some who are even more culturally relevant today than in their prime. Through first-person storytelling, incredible archival, and evocative recreations, Dark Side of Comedy explores the intensely personal journeys of the world’s most beloved comics, and the struggles that they encounter behind the mask.

Dave Foley narrates the new series which features interviews with Gilbert Gottfried, Patton Oswalt, Russell Peters, DeRay Davis, Ed “The Machine” Regine, Godfrey, Pete Holmes, Marc Maron, Scott Thompson, Cecil Brown and looks at the likes of Andrew Dice Clay, Chris Farley, Freddie Prinze, Maria Bamford, Artie Lange, Roseanne Barr, Dustin Diamond, Greg Giraldo, Brett Butler, and Richard Pryor.

Dark Side of Comedy hits Vice TV on 16th August 2022.
