Scott Moran and “Modern Comedian”

Modern Comedian is a new web series by Scott Moran.  Moran, a comedian, follows/films/interviews other comedians.  There will be 10 episodes (at least for this season), 3 are already posted, and new episodes are uploaded on Mondays.

So far:

The episodes are a nice length, scored by very pensive music.  They seem to focus on a facet of the comedian’s act or personality, rather than the comedian’s biography.

Moran on Moran (from his website):

Scott Moran is an up and coming stand-up comedian from Seattle, WA now based in New York City. His material explores his life as a member of the middle class in a silly and sometimes surprisingly poignant, smart-assy manner. Scott is a regular on shows all around NYC and tours the country featuring in comedy clubs and playing indie shows on a regular basis.

From Moran’s interview with thecomicscomic.com:

Were there any other documentary series like this that inspired Modern Comedian? Two things come to mind. The first being the WTF podcast which in my opinion is THE podcast. I know there are a bunch of good podcasts, but I wanted to create something visual where you could learn about a comedian. Also Errol Morris, my favorite documentary film maker, was a huge inspiration.

I love this series and am already hoping for a second season.  I also like finding out about comedians I haven’t heard of yet and this provides a great introduction. Go watch!
