"Before his name became synonymous with a new style of comedy; before he had written, directed, or produced his first movie or TV show; before he and his roommate Adam Sandler were performing stand up at dive bars in LA; before all that, Judd Apatow was a kid in Syosett, Long Island who was utterly obsessed with comedy. At 16, he started hosting a radio show for his local high school station, and he would call up the biggest comics of the day - comics like Jerry Seinfeld, Jay Leno, Steve Allen, Sandra Bernhard; none of whom, by the way, had any idea they were talking to a kid in his parents' garage -- and talk to them about what got them into comedy, and what made them stay in. Thirty years later, Apatow is still that comedy nerd, and still interviewing comics about what drives them and why they do what they do. That obsession has made him one of the most recognizable and influential comedic filmmakers working today. This book is a collection of 30 years worth of conversations -- always funny, often poignant, and incredibly intimate -- that not only span Apatow's career, but his adult life. Featuring interviews with luminaries like Mel Brooks and Chris Rock and modern icons like Louis CK and Amy Schumer, this is a book for fans of comedy, from the nerdiest fan of all"--… (més)

Disappointing, but it's my own fault. I assumed this was a more straightforward memoir, but it's a series of interviews Apatow did with various comedians, and I'm not very keen on reading interviews. So, I skimmed and read the ones involving people I like most (Adam Sandler, Amy Schumer, Jim Carrey,...). But overall, meh. If you like this sort of thing, though, go for it. ( )

The book was not quite what I had expected it to be ( i.e. laugh out loud funny), but I found many of the chapters very interesting: Roseanne, Amy Schumer, Leslie Mann, Colbert, Seth Rogen, Silverman, Chris Rock, Fallon to name a few. Others were like eh (Sandler and Seinfeld) and then some people I never heard of or had no interest reading about so I just skipped their chapters. I gave it a 3 star rating because some were more two's others were 4's so I split the difference. Worth reading if interested in comedy or comedians or the comedic process. ( )

The book is about comedy and is more interesting than funny. I am not really a fan of most of Apatow's work (except for The Larry Sanders Show--maybe I'd like Freaks and Geeks if I ever saw it), but I was impressed at the guts he showed, interviewing all these famous comedians at age 15. The later interviews seem more like "transcribed conversations" than interviews, as Apatow injects his own story into them more, but they were still interesting. I particularly enjoyed the chapters that featured comedy greats such as Mel Brooks and Steve Allen. If only Apatow had been able to interview George Carlin and Richard Pryor! The book was easy to pick up and put down, which is good because it was quite long, perhaps too long, though it's hard to know what he should have cut. ( )

Some really great interviews and some not so great. Relating personal stories or influences to connect with an interview subject is a great thing, but when the same basic stories are repeated for 556 pages it can get a bit tiresome. ( )
