Dying to Do Letterman

If you look on Netflix Instant right now, there are some great documentaries about comedians that are worth a look. Conan O'Brien Can't Stop, The Comedians of Comedy, Mr. Warmth: The Don Rickles Project and many more have plenty of laughs and provoking insight into the life and mind of a comedian. Now a new documentary chronicles the unique trials and tribulations of comedian Steve Mazan. Like any other comic, he dreamed of performing on "The Late Show with David Letterman," but a curveball was thrown his way in the form of cancer that might leave him with only five years to live. It looks inspiring and heart-wrenching and there's interviews with comedians like Jim Gaffigan and Ray Romano. Watch the trailer!

Here's the first trailer for Joke Fincioen and Biagio Messina's Dying to Do Letterman from YouTube:

When 35 year old stand-up comedian Steve Mazan learned he had cancer, and might only have five years to live, he dedicated his life living his dream: performing comedy on "The Late Show with David Letterman." This documentary chronicles his five-year journey, as he races his own ticking clock to achieve a nearly impossible goal. Featured comedians in Dying to Do Letterman include Ray Romano, Jim Gaffigan, Kevin Nealon and more. Joke Fincioen and Biagio Messina direct the film from Adam Yauch's Oscilloscope Laboratories, but it doesn't have a release date. Stay tuned to the film's website and Facebook page. Well?
