      I hope they do more things like this. Comedy has always been there through my life and I couldn't imagine what it would be like without the greats like John.

      Saw him many times in Las Vegas. It was always amazing.

      @baldo rodriguez I think they meant "death" as in his career, when he stopped working for a while due to his health when he was given a year to live. Thankfully that didn't happen & Johnathan had lots of people who cared & got/kept him on the right track :)

      @All Things Comedy he's still alive right!?!?!?!?! Why does it say DEATH?

  • Riphade

    I didn't know any of this about him. I thought he just stopped doing shows. Just remember catching his stand-ups on comedy central all the time. Real shame.

  • jNs3

    Tiny Tim didnt die on stage. He had a heart attack while singing his song but finished(what a trooper!) The heart attack ultimately killed him but not at location of performance. He passed out at the venue but later died at hospital.

  • MoonPie84

    I watched him growing up. Loved every minute of it. Best IT-my recommendation ever.

    Johnathan- "Ive got a year to live" Random fan- "that shits some comedy gold!" Johnathan- "...not a joke guys" ...ouch

    The only thing I was slightly disappointed by was that this didn't dive into when Penny "Psychic Tanya" Wiggins joined the show, her performance became not made his show better but at some point became crucial. That aside, I just love that this exists as Johnathan is one of my favorite comedians ever and to see a piece dedicated to him is well over due.

    I was born in 1981. I discovered stand up comedy after my mom and dad divorced and it gave me the ability to laugh at the bad times in my life when I was a young man. No three comics when I was in my teens made me laugh more than George Carlin, Bill Hicks, and The Amazing Johnathan

    Been loving this guy since Dane Cook used to open for him back in the days. Glad I got to see him live. Byrne and the crew did a great job with this documentary.

    When that woman laughed when he said he had a year to live, I feel bad for her she really didn’t know and she probably felt awful. Anyways that was a throat choking moment

    I wish i could hit like for john for everytime i laughed as a kid watching him......nothing can show the love and appreciation i have for his talents.

  • eyemh8

    Got free tickets for him in Vegas. We were disappointed because he wasn’t one of the “Big Names” and about 15 years later still the best show I have ever seen.

    I remember seeing The Amazing Jonathon ok Comedy Central when I was in the 7th grade and it was incredible. To watch someone do what he did it was unbelievable, I mean I’d never seen anyone act/speak/or take everything the way he did. I mean he shot his assistant on stage, stabbed himself, had a light fall on him fucking everything. I remember sitting and trying to figure out how the fuck this shit was even legal 😂😂😂 man I couldn’t imagine having such a good sense of humor I faked my own suicide😂😂😂 Also fuck the police for handling a suicide that way guns drawn screaming and yelling fucking ridiculous

    This is way more wholesome than that other documentary I watched about an entertainer who brings a kid home from Australia.

  • pitobrain

    This is some top quality free shit. Thanks.

  • straittalkn

    Like so many others, I grew up watching the amazing johnathan on "hey hey it's Saturday" here in Australia, such great memories watching this! What a true talent! 🤣🤣

  • reignofrock

    That part about Joel's dad... haha.. Great.

  • jckgrim51

    My dad took me to Vegas after losing a huge hockey tournament to get my spirits up. I was 16 but looked like a 19 year old for some reason and my dad snuck me into this guys show and it was the amazingly the best show so far in my 32 years of living! I bought his prank book and it has some hilarious party gags in there.

  • reignofrock

    Shout out to Bill Burr's podcast. Steve's episode was a really great one so I knew I had to watch this.

  • ByloBand

    What a great tribute to Joel.

  • thatdudephilly

    He smoked Alot of pot 😂

  • Demandredzero

    I was in Vegas in 2006, and I had a chance to see George Carlin at the MGM Grand, and I passed it up to se the Amazing Jonathan at the Golden Nugget. I think I made the correct choice.

    You are such an inspiration. I’ve been a huge fan of your work for so long. I was diagnosed with a fatal heart condition in March, and after watching this it makes me want to fight so much harder, love so much more. You are truly an inspiration.

  • Rub198

    This is by far the best content this channel has ever put out. Made me laugh, made me cry, made me rethink my own life and forget it all at once. And I didn't even know who the Amazing Jonathan was before this. Thank you!

    I remember seeing Jonathan on TV so I was interested in this. The bit about Joel's childhood and drawing stick figures after his dad left - the way Jonathan laughs about it made me genuinely crack up. I find it uplifting when we can look back on rough times and make light of it.
