Comedian is a 2002 documentary focusing on Jerry Seinfeld that explores the other side of stand-up comedy; that is, the preparation, politics, nerves, creativity, and so on. The film also features an up-and-coming comic named Orny Adams as he struggles to make it in show business. Many other recognizable humorists also make at least a cameo: Colin Quinn, Jim Norton, Ray Romano, Godfrey, Chris Rock, Jay Leno, and Bill Cosby are just a few.

The films' unusual trailer featured famous voice-over artist Hal Douglas speaking in a recording booth.[1]

The film was theatrically released in the United States on October 11, 2002 and grossed about $2.8 million domestically.[2] The documentary is rated R for language.
