WHY WE LAUGH was inspired by comedian Darryl Littletons book “Black Comedians on Black Comedy”. Producer and writer Quincy Newell and director Robert Townsend have crafted a no-holds-barred documentary that is both an insiders take and a critical examination of the cultural influence of black comedy.
Why We Laugh is a hilarious and spectacularly archived film enriched by including interviews with prominent scholars, politicians, cultural critics, and a host of notable comics, including Dick Gregory, Bill Cosby, Chris Rock, Keenan Ivory Wayans, Katt Williams, D.L. Hughley, Steve Harvey and Sommore. The only draw back is — it’s only broadcasting outlet is exclusively on SHOWTIME.
If you don’t have the premium channel -go on and LAUGH ANYWAY,
and Laughter is something black folks easily produce all day everyday.
