ROBIN WILLIAMS: COME INSIDE MY MIND Official Trailer (2018) HBO Documentary Movie HD

Fashioned from archival footage, old audio tapes, interviews with Williams’ contemporaries and clips of the comic’s stand-up, Come Inside My Mind is the first documentary to comprehensively examine Williams’ life and art since his suicide in 2014. It includes virtually no narration, save for Williams’ own, which can have an eerie, almost ghostlike effect (if only ghosts were as charming and exuberant as Robin Williams). “Every person is driven by some deep, deep, deep, deep secret,” he says in voiceover about halfway through the film.

Yes, ‘Black Monday’ Is a Comedy

Black Monday may take its name, and central plot mechanism, from a real-world event, but it isn’t set in anything remotely like the real world.

Peak TV has upended so many genre conventions that a straight-up comedy can come as a surprise. But Showtime’s ‘Black Monday’ is meant to be one.

The only problem with comedy during the Trump era is that some audiences seem to expect more of it than it could ever deliver. Comedy isn’t going to save us. Trump will never feel so deeply owned by a Saturday Night Live sketch that he decides to call it quits.

These are the moments that delivered the most comic relief this year–from movies, shows, sketches, podcasts, Twitter, and more.

Ellen DeGeneres on Netflix stand-up special, depression battle: 'It took a while to shake'

Most of the material in her hour-long set would be equally at home on her syndicated daytime talk show: observational humor about vacation expectations vs. reality, prescription-drug ads and exchanging funny pet videos with her wife, actress Portia de Rossi. There's even an extended bit in which she ardently twerks to Juvenile's "Back That Thang Up," although she nixed her now-famous dancing on TV.

"Ellen DeGeneres: Relatable," streaming on Netflix Tuesday, marks the daytime personality's first stand-up comedy special in 15 years.

Working Girl at 30: the workplace comedy that changed the game

Griffith had already made headlines for her underage romance with Don Johnson, who was eight years older when he invited her to move in. Life stayed chaotic for the next decade and a half with marriages, divorces, drug and alcohol stumbles and titillating flicks like Body Double and Smile. Griffith’s private life and public image fused. She was the sexpot, the nymphet, the bimbo, the blond. No one was curious about her brain.

The 1988 tale of a Staten Island woman making waves in the big city was a major hit and scored six Oscar nods, but how do its sexual politics hold up?
