Funny People Synopsis

Over the past few years, writer/director Judd Apatow (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up) has shown that nothing, not even losing your virginity or the miracle of childbirth, is sacred. About his third film behind the camera, he says, "I'm trying to make a very serious movie that is twice as funny as my other movies. Wish me luck!" Apatow directs Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen and Leslie Mann in Funny People, the story of a famous comedian who has a near-death experience.

In Defense Of Funny People: Judd Apatow Still Loves Schmucks In Defense Of Funny People: Judd Apatow Still Loves Schmucks
Judd Apatow has added Funny People to his IMDB page, an absolute behemoth of length, emotion and moral turpitude containing none of the schmucks you’ve come to love. Meandering, weighty and brimming with business trips to Asia

The last time someone handed Judd Apatow a budget to direct a movie it was for the amount of $30 million. For that he managed a cast which included one not-quite-a-name-yet actor Seth Rogen and a Grey's-Anatomy-problem-child Katherine Heigl

The second part of the Raaaaaaandy documentary is online now, and it's once again a deadpan, faux-reverent treatment of a comedian who bears a pretty strong resemblance to Dane Cook

Judd Apatow isn’t just funny, he’s a comedy nerd. If you caught him on the Tonight Show a few months ago then you probably heard him talk about how as a 15-year-old he lured Leno to his parents house

Red Band Funny People Trailer Red Band Funny People Trailer
Funny People has a brand new, Red Band trailer. The tone is fairly low key, much like the other trailers. But give them credit here, they’re actually taking advantage of the R-rated trailer format to talk about oral sex and liberally use salty language

Do you hate Dane Cook? Does his brand of over-the-top yelling-rather-than-observing stand-up comedy make your blood boil? What about his audience? Ever notice how they cheer at his jokes rather than laugh at them

Yo Teach! Judd Apatow's New Fake Sitcom Yo Teach! Judd Apatow's New Fake Sitcom
Judd Apatow is going above and beyond for Funny People. He’s not just shooting a movie, he’s also shooting a fake TV show within the movie. It stars Jason Schwartzman and it’s called “Yo Teach” and it’s coming on NBC (in some alternate universe) on Thursdays this fall.

Obviously the tone of Yo Teach! is nothing like what we'll see in Funny People, but the whole thing is genuinely funny in a way we only trust the Apatow gang to pull off
