Takes a raw, unfiltered look at stand up through the eyes of up and coming comedians from across the USA. Each episode presents a compelling portrait of a comedian on the verge of breaking out to become the next big name in comedy.

The diverse lineup of breakout talent offers insights into the motivations behind baring one's soul for a living.

Their dynamic, personal performances - where nothing is off limits - will show us exactly how, in their own inimitable way, each comedian turns life into art.

The first episode features Zainab Johnson, whose comedy is informed by her experiences growing up in Harlem in an African-American Muslim family. When you are one of 13 children you've got to stand out – or stand up – to get attention.
