This feature documentary explores the 35-year history of The Comic Strip, the iconic New York comedy club where Jerry Seinfeld, Eddie Murphy, Adam Sandler, Chris Rock and hundreds of the best comedians of our time honed their craft.

"The Comic Strip was the center of the world for anyone in comedy."
