Spike Lee’s documentary following the live performance of four very funny comedians would be so much better if it wasn’t so long.  By the time you get to , the sensational closing act, the actual film has run out of steam even though the performances have not (stand-up comedy is a very different experience when sitting in a movie theatre as opposed to seeing and feeling it live). That said, you will get a lot of laughs out of these truly hysterical guys.
