Make yourself a better human being by enjoying this fun chin wag I had with Judd Apatow about comedy and the George Carlin documentary he just made that premieres on HBO May 20th. Come get some laughter all over your face!

I'll be honest with you, when Judd Apatow told me that he liked my podcast I thought he was bullshiting me. But then after I witnessed a suicide and put out a podcast about what happened and the PTSD that I experienced after, Judd sent me lovely message telling me that he thought it was brave that I talked about it and thought the episode would help a lot of people. Judd reaching out to me at that moment was also perfect timing because I had just watched the documentary Judd made about Garry Shandling and that had helped to lift me up when I was in my lowest, darkest place.
Judd is not only a comedian and comedy film director, he is one of the kindest and most thoughtful people in all of show business. I was tickled that he came to my humble little home to record this conversation with me.
In this episode we talk about our tribe of comedians and the brilliant documentary on George Carlin that Judd just made that premieres on HBO May 20th.
In a world full of stress and uncertainty comedy is more valuable than it has ever been.
I let the teenage comedy nerd in me run wild in this conversation, as Judd and I celebrated together our passion for comedy.
I know every drop of this interview is going to bring sunshine to your heart, and that is why it is my pleasure to present to you, the one and only Judd Apatow!
