Not much comedy in the comedy title

Short on jokes.

This should be less than free.

I was expecting 5 minute clips from a dozen big names that came out of the comedy store that would be worth the asking price. About half the program is describing what it was like to work for the comedy store. The rest mostly not the really big names or not doing their best stuff. It is like a cut rate documentary that could not afford to license good historic footage.
