When we see comedy specials on tv, it's months and months of the comic working on the material and perfecting everything. The preparation, though, is where you really see what you're made of as a comic. 

Check out the trailer for Dying Laughing, where comics like Jerry Seinfeld, Cedric The Entertainer, Chris Rock and more explain how tough the job really is. Dying Laughing is coming out on February 24th in theaters and On Demand.
