"Misery Loves Comedy" will explore the mind of the stand-up comic and all those who choose to write or perform comedy as a profession. Pollack uses interviews, day-in-the-life sequences, archival and historic footage and photos, observations, essays and insights to explore why a person gets on stage in front of a room full of strangers when, in fact, public speaking is all other Americans' #1 fear, even above death. Pollak and the producers have assembled a veritable who's who of comedic talent both onstage and off.
