Standing Up

Three unlikely aspiring comedians risk everything to find their voices on the cutthroat New York stand-up scene. David Finklestein is an ultra-Orthodox Jew from a secluded Brooklyn sect. Although he risks expulsion from his community with every performance, comedy is David's only way of coping with his crippling anxiety. Sara Parks moved to New York to become a comic star, but is barely scraping by with menial jobs.
