Too Soon: Comedy After 9/11

VICE | 9:00 pm

There's an old saying that tragedy plus time equals comedy. That proved true after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks on U.S. targets, after which, for a time, comedy seemed to stop completely. This new two-hour documentary from filmmakers Nick Scown and Julie Seabaugh is a look back at the 20 years since 9/11, and how comedy slowly regained its footing and eventually became more powerful than ever. Interviewees include Janeane Garofalo, Nathan Lane, Cedric the Entertainer, Mo Rocca, Rich Eisen, David Cross and Marc Maron, among others.
