Set to debut in less than a month is Talking Funny, an HBO special featuring Ricky Gervais, Louis C.K., Jerry Seinfeld, and Chris Rock. Those four names should be reason enough to tune in but if you need further incentive, we have a promo and a clip from the special, both of which will surely make you laugh.

Set to premiere on Friday, April 22nd (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), Talking Funny features the above mentioned comedians as they discuss their careers and their craft. Given their varying comedic stylings, it should be interesting to hear what each has to say. You’ll get a good idea of what this special will be about (and how well these four mix together) in the videos below:

Maybe I’m alone on this but I’m going to admit to having some (very mild) reservations about this special prior to watching these videos. As a fan of all four comedians, I wondered if they would be as funny together as they are apart or would they clash? Is there some chance that their comedic greatness might dilute itself into something just ok when up against one another? Is there a chance I’m over-thinking this? Probably.

The part of me that was holding back setting my hopes too high is likely due to having been burned in the past when multiple types of awesome joined forces to become something that’s just ok or else, off-rhythm and ultimately disappointing. Ketchup and chocolate are both great but I wouldn’t want to mix them together. Watching the videos above, I feel like we have something really great to look forward to and at the very least, the whole will be equal, if not greater than the sum of its parts.
