Comedy Warriors: Healing Through Humor is a documentary film featuring five severely wounded service members – four men and one woman – from the Iraq/Afghanistan conflicts, with injuries ranging from burns to multiple amputations. They were selected from numerous submissions to embark on an exciting new mission; stand-up comedy. With help from their own individual comedy writer mentors, and coaching from A-List comedians like Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover), Bob Saget (Full House), B.J. Novak (The Office), and Lewis Black (Lewis Black’s Root of All Evil), they were guided in creating their own personal stand-up routines, and fine-tuned until ready to perform at LA’s top comedy clubs. You get to know each of the Comedy Warriors intimately, as we visit their hometowns and meet their families.
Take five wounded veterans and four top comedians, the result… laughter and the healing power of humor.
