Synopsis: Sometimes the business of making people laugh is no laughing matter. With more reported instances of substance abuse, depression, loneliness, and suicide, the line between comedy and tragedy is getting thinner and the need for open conversation about mental health is more important than ever before. Developed in partnership with Funny Or Die, “It’s Not That Funny,” is a documentary that brings comedians together for an honest look and real conversations about comedy + mental health. When the cost of bringing others joy is your own joy, the cost is too high.
