Just watched Punching the Clown over the weekend. Great film. I liked the way the radio station interviews worked as a framing device, how Henry Phillips' performance footage is mixed in to the story (a bit like Louie), and the smart/funny writing throughout.
There's a scene at the end, where he's walking on a beach and explaining why he keeps performing, that really nails the rabbit hole that is performing comedy. Check it out.
