About The Film
Discover the real person behind Gilda Radner’s hilarious characters in this documentary through never-before-seen footage, newly discovered personal audio and videotapes, and interviews with Radner's funny friends (Chevy Chase, Laraine Newman, Martin Short). Radner’s recently unearthed diaries are read by a generation of the comedians she inspired, including Melissa McCarthy, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, and Bill Hader.
