Let America Laugh
Comedian David Cross was one of the creators of the brilliant Mr. Show and now appears on the Fox series Arrested Development, which is hands-down the best thing on network television. Let America Laugh is ostensibly a comedy tour movie, but unlike most of that genre, the focus is off-stage, not on. And there's plenty of hilarity out there: Cross antagonizing club owners, Cross being interviewed by a clueless college journalist, Cross and his tourmates buying fireworks. If you appreciate Cross's sarcastic wit, this one's definitely worth renting.
