The Comedians' Comedian was a three-hour programme broadcast on UK's Channel 4 on January 1, 2005.
The show listed the top fifty comedians of all time, as voted for by fellow comedians and business insiders, rather than the general public.
Among the comedians were three double acts (making a total of 53 comedians), three members of Monty Python, 33 British comedians, 18 Americans, one Irishman, and one Canadian; 48 men, and five women.

 Comedian
Most of the comedians we surveyed mentioned these visible successes as partially responsible for their staying in the profession, however unlikely a similar meteoric rise might be.
Most of the surveys received from comedians were distinctly unfunny in their responses to our questions about how they live day-to-day.

 The Popkorn Junkie :: Comedian
Though I have tried denying it for quite some time, and though it truly pains me to say this almost to the point of tears--Jerry Seinfeld's extended 15 minutes of fame may be completely over.
It features cameos from comedians like Garry Shandling, Bill Cosby, and Kevin Nealon, and most of the film is about what goes on backstage.
Jerry Seinfeld is obviously a funny guy and a very gifted comedian, but something needs to happen quick before he completely falls off radar, and credit card commercials aren't going to cut it.

 DVD Verdict Review - Comedian
Comedian is a tale of two men, with neither of them being a renegade robot cop in a land that time forgot, which is something we learn from the trailer.
The first of these men is Jerry Seinfeld, a comedian who rose to the top of the heap and was king of the castle, serving as an inspiration for other comedians to make a go at their own (mostly mediocre) sitcoms.
I was really amazed at how much work a comedian puts into his or her act, striving to make every word, pause, and gesture just right to maximize the hilarity.

Although amoral by nature, the Comedian was thunderstruck by Ozymandias' bloody plan to save the world, his knowledge of which led to his death at the hands of Ozymandias.
Indeed, the Comedian's deep personal insights are catalyst to all the costume heroes that their purpose and meaning were obsolete and even silly in an era of geo-politics, the Cold War, and the real threat of nuclear destruction.

 Comedian review **3/4 - CTF
Jerry Seinfeld has come full circle with "Comedian," a documentary about what it takes to make it in comedy, and how money, success, and fame aren't a substitute for doing what you love.
It was like watching a well produced behind-the-scenes documentary for a movie, where you just sit back amazed at the amount of work and struggle that went into a mere moment of the audience's time.
It tried to look at comedians through only their professional lives, instead of showing us how comedy has interacted with and affected them personally as well.

 Jerry Seinfeld: Comedian (2002)
Comedian could have become little more than a star vehicle for Seinfeld to get himself back before the public eye, and I worried that we’d not see anything other than happy-happy joy-joy for Jerry.
It’s cool to watch him behind the scenes and see what his life as a comedian is like, but it’s not like there’s much chance anything genuinely surprising will happen to him.
Comedian appears in an aspect ratio of 1.33:1 on this single-sided, double-layered DVD; due to those dimensions, the image has not been enhanced for 16X9 televisions.

Comedian is successful at describing the processes, attitudes and goals of two very different comics, as well as depicting the strenuous life on the stand-up circuit.

It's been said that comedy is hard to do, a theorem that's sadly proven in director Christian Charles' debut film, a wishy-washy documentary on Jerry Seinfeld, whom he worked with in a seires of American Express commercials.
Comedian starts with Seinfeld, not content to retire after starring in one of the most popular sitcoms in television history, getting back to his stand-up roots and honing his routine at various gigs around the country.
Comedian follows Seinfeld through a number of embarrassing moments, including a performance during which he gets to the end of a joke and can't recall the punch line, even after sifting through his notes.

The Comedian Harmonists were a German singing sensation of the 1920s and '30s.
In 1976 Eberhard Fechner produced a two-part documentary film "Comedian Harmonists"; in 1997 it was shown again in Germany to coincide with the release of a new film.
Telling the story of the Comedian Harmonists, the musical does not use the Comedian Harmonists' own songs or arrangements, however, and the "fatally bland" music by Manilow has been described by at least one reviewer as the show's weak point.

In Comedian, however, the strain of separating the private from the public slowly leads to one contradiction after another for Seinfeld, until in the end (and without even realizing it), it is his routine which suffers.
As a result, he does manage to transcend all that makes a struggling comedian desperate in the first place, and yet in refusing to acknowledge the privilege that now dominates his life, his relationship to popular culture feels flat and inappropriate.
A trope of the aging artist that Seinfeld rejects in Comedian is the notion of the mentor.
