Sicker in the head : more conversations about life and comedy / Judd Apatow.

Apatow, Judd, 1967- (author.).


"No one knows comedy like Judd Apatow. From interviewing the biggest comics of the day for his high school radio show to performing stand-up in L.A. dive bars with his roommate Adam Sandler, to writing and directing Knocked Up and producing Freaks and Geeks, Apatow has always lived, breathed, and dreamed comedy. In this all-new collection of interviews, the sequel to the New York Times bestselling Sick in the Head, Apatow sits down with comedy icons John Mulaney, Hannah Gadsby, David Letterman, Whoopi Goldberg, Bowen Yang, Hasan Minhaj, Margaret Cho, and many others to discuss what got them into comedy, and what--despite personal and national traumas--keeps them going. Together, they talk about staying up too late to watch late-night comedy, what kind of nerds they were in high school, and the right amount of delusional self-confidence one needs to try and "make it" in the industry. Along the way, they reminisce about their fellow comedians and showrunners who helped them through failure and rejection, and look ahead to the future of comedy and Hollywood in a hyper-connected, overstimulated world. With his trademark insight, curiosity, and legendary sense of humor, Apatow explores the nature of creativity, professional ambition, and vulnerability in an ever-evolving cultural landscape, and how our favorite comics are able to keep us laughing along the way."-- Provided by publisher.
