Stand Up University - documentary

Here's a 5-minute clip from the beginning of Stand Up University.

This is a documentary about a party guy named Rob Altmann and his journey to realizing his dream of becoming a stand up comedian.

Rob's a 43-year old "guy stuck in a frat house environment" that goes through a 7-week course teaching the craft of stand up.

There are a group of other students in the class and we follow them, along with Rob, as they attempt the conquer their fears and get up there on stage!

Here's a clip that happens right after the credits.

We get to meet Rob in his "natural party environment" and then see the comedy class, along with intros of the other students.
