Summary
This collection is encyclopedic in its scope -- a reader gets a master's in comedy -- while being constantly funny, extraordinarily candid, and offering so many unprecedented delights that it really can't be replicated elsewhere. There is perhaps no one in world whose influence on contemporary comedy is so potent and wide-ranging. Judd Apatow is a brilliant writer, director, producer, mentor, and ringmaster. The genius behind Freaks and Geeks, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Superbad, Knocked Up, Funny People, and, most recently, the producer of Girls, Apatow is not only a creator of the highest order, he has an uncanny knack for spotting and supporting emerging talent, while never losing track of his forebears. And so it only makes sense that Apatow would gather his hilarious, insightful, unforgettable conversations with the iconic minds of film, television and comedy. Read Judd's interview, when he was 16 and operating a radio show out of his garage, with Jerry Seinfeld, just before Seinfeld hit it big with his television show. Read Judd's revealing conversations with Albert Brooks and the late Harold Ramis -- icons who would only open up like this to a peer like Apatow. Read the hysterical conversations between Judd and his actress-comedian spouse, Leslie Mann. Each conversation has Apatow's unique mix of humor and emotional candor. Featuring photos unavailable anywhere else -- from Apatow's early days as a stand-up comic to more recent work on the sets of his blockbuster films. Royalties will be donated by to 826LA, a nonprofit writing and tutoring center in Los Angeles
