In The Name Of Comedy is a true story that was inspired by a fake video. Let's backtrack. Four years ago, Brett Eidman was a struggling, unknown comedian that would do just about anything to change that. When he made a highly controversial, uh, politically-incorrect video, it went viral - to the tune of 10 million hits. Almost immediately though, Brett's dream turned into a nightmare. Because of the video's controversial content, Brett was threatened and black balled. In The Name Of Comedy pulls down the curtain on one of the most controversial videos ever distributed. Comedians Lisa Lampanelli, Johnny Lampert, and Jeffrey Gurian weigh in with their opinions.
