Judd Apatow
Director, writer and producer Judd Apatow is well known for his distinct comedic style and involvement in a collection of "foulmouthed straight-man-love movies." Apatow's prolific collection of films includes "Pineapple Express," "The 40 Year-Old Virgin" and "Knocked Up." He's supported and broken stars such as Steve Carrell, Seth Rogen, and James Franco. Apatow started his career performing stand-up comedy at the age of seventeen, and wrote for "The Ben Stiller Show" at 24. "I Found This Funny" is a new compilation edited by Apatow of some of his favorite authors -- ranging from F. Scott Fitzgerald to David Foster Wallace. He appears in conversation with Dave Eggers, author of "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius," "You Shall Know Our Velocity" and "What is the What."
