The Giants of Comedy: Set 2

The Giants of Comedy


Comedian Jordan Peele's Get Out confused many film
festival leaders and moviegoers. Was it a comedy, drama, or horror flick? Peele
answered them that it was a documentary. For hundreds of years, satire has
provided an honest critique on society, making the artful comedian someone to
celebrate. This series provides insightful biographies of some of the most
talented and influential comedians working today including Jordan Peele, Tiffany
Haddish, and Trevor Noah. Each biography covers the comedian's childhood, how
they became interested in making people laugh, and the steps they took to make a
career out of comedy. Readers will learn about each comedian's rise to
prominence and their influences on popular culture. Comedians are often walking
a fine line between political correctness and a creative license that can
offend, shock, or critique and challenge prevailing personal and social
assumptions and orthodoxies, this series uniquely celebrates that fact.
