If I’m a sucker for one kind of movie, it’s the comedy documentary. Sadly, it’s not the most common genre, but a new trailer has just been released for a film that will please any comedy nerd.

Tell Your Friends! The Concert Film!, by Liam McEneaney and Victor Varnado, features performances by some of the most notorious faces from the alternative comedy world, including Kristen Schaal, Kurt Braunohler, Reggie Watts, Christian Finnegan, Rob Paravonian, and Leo Allen. In addition to those live bits, the film features interviews with comics like Janeane Garofalo, Marc Maron, Colin Quinn, Paul F. Tompkins, Hannibal Buress, and Jim Gaffigan. Check the trailer out below, and get excited for Tell Your Friends. And then tell your friends.
