Tribeca 2024: ‘Group Therapy’ Review: Six Comedians Get Honest and Vulnerable About Mental Health | Movies We Texted About

Comedy is one of the great cultural forces. It is, in many ways, the great equalizer. In the hands of a talented performer, comedy speaks truth to power, whether that means mocking our leaders or finding commonality in the human experience.  It’s the latter of these that filmmaker Neil Berkeley’s latest documentary, Group Therapy, in which six comedians known for their frank discussion of mental health issues –Mike BirbigliaNicole ByerGary GulmanLondon HughesTig Notaro, and Atsuko Okatsuka– are brought together to speak about the subject in a makeshift group session moderated by Neil Patrick Harris
