If you’re anything like us here at Laughspin, you probably love to learn about the behind-the-scenes world of comedy. Comedy nerddom means we’re always asking questions: how do comedians get started in their career path? Where do they find their inspiration? That kind of stuff.
A new online video series will shed some light on those questions and more. FORA.tv, a collection of conference and event videos, has just released a series of videos from 2010 featuring five comedy stars — Lewis Black, Russell Brand, Jimmy Fallon, Tracy Morgan and Ben Stiller — talking seriously about their comedy careers alongside New York Times journalists.
You can check out some previews below. But to get the full hour-long interviews, you’re going to have to lay some money down. We’re talking $5 for each episode or $20 for the complete series pass.
