Variety: Gravitas Buys Stand-Up Comedy Documentary ‘Dying Laughing’

“Over two years, as the film began to emerge from the thousands of miles traveled and hundreds of hours or interviews, we learned about the physical and emotional dedication that it takes to become a stand-up comedian, and that the prospect of failure haunts even the most experienced and celebrated practitioners,” said Toogood and Stanton. “We hope that the audience will find the final piece as touching, thought-provoking, inspirational and as funny as we do.”

The duo also produced the film alongside producer Suli McCullough and co-producers Samantha Phillips and Daphne Wayans. Keith Haviland, Adam Longworth and John Thomson are the executive producers. FULL ARTICLE HERE

On the first thing a woman should do...
Daphne Wayans (5 births; no medication): I'd look at the timeline history of childbirth techniques, notice when pain medication was introduced (early 1900's), and ask yourself, 'How did women have babies up until that point?' I'd urge you to look at the birthing techniques of other mammals."

Apparl: Spotlight on Daphne Wayans
