Sick in the Head: Conversations About Life and Comedy By Judd Apatow


071715_mishmash_bookEver dream of having a sit- down with your heroes? Producer/director/screenwriter Apatow has been doing it for 30 years.

Long before  “Freaks and Geeks” and  “Knocked Up,” the self-described  “comedy nerd” was, as a host of a show on his high-school radio station, interviewing the likes of Jerry Seinfeld and Garry Shandling. And he’s never really stopped.

Decades in the making,  “Sick in the Head” is a collection of his funny, candid chats with dozens of the biggest names in comedy, from those who inspired him (Mel Brooks, Steve Martin) to those whose careers he’s nudged along (Seth Rogen, Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham). Come for the laughs, but stay for the soul-searching substance that spills out whenever talented, creative people start talking about why they do what they do.

Never miss a story.
