Amy Schumer, Kevin Hart, Sarah Silverman, Steve Coogan and the late Garry Shandling are among the dozens of comedians who discuss the highs and lows of their profession.

"Comedy is purely a result of your ability to withstand self-torture," says Jerry Seinfeld in the trailer for Dying Laughing.

Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Cedric the Entertainer, Amy Schumer, Kevin Hart, Sarah Silverman, Steve Coogan and the late Garry Shandling are among the dozens of comedians who discuss the highs and lows of their profession in the documentary by Paul Toogood and Lloyd Stanton.

In the preview, comics recall the worst things they've ever heard while performing onstage. "When I was younger, it used to literally kill me," says Jamie Foxx of heckling. "Now I'm able to float through it — because I have money."

Gravitas Ventures releases the doc in theaters and on demand on Feb. 24.
