Aspiring writer/comedian Vic Cohen has no shtick. He has no hook, no particular skill, nothing to really sell himself with. But he does have an unshakeable belief that life is for doing what really makes him happy—and a helluva lot of chutzpah. How then, did this complete unknown manage to charm his way into the life of celebrity comedian/actor Howie Mandel? With a simple and unrelenting gesture, he not only piqued Mandel’s curiosity, but sparked a destiny-changing relationship for them both. Mandel began shooting his exchanges with Vic, and for 13 years documented their conversations, Vic’s outrageous auditions and even more earnest—and often unpalatable—attempts at finding his creative voice. What results is an engaging chronicle of a sincere friendship and an even rarer peek into an unexpected mentorship between two artists. If you’ve ever dreamt of show business, or even simply living true to yourself, Committed serves up an inspiring look at the hard road to success. Myrocia Watamaniuk
