From Judd Apatow, writer and director of Knocked Up and the producer of Freaks and Geeks, SICK IN THE HEAD gives a peak inside the brilliant minds of Apatow and his many comedy pals. Grab a copy when it comes out on June 16th!
SICK IN THE HEAD gathers Apatow’s most memorable and revealing conversations into one hilarious, wide-ranging, and incredibly candid collection with comedy legends who inspired and shaped him (Mel Brooks and Steve Martin), the contemporaries he grew up with in Hollywood (Spike Jonze and Sarah Silverman), and the brightest stars in comedy today (Seth Rogen and Amy Schumer). What started as a lifetime’s worth of conversations about comedy became an exploration of creativity, ambition, neediness, generosity, spirituality, and the joy that comes from making people laugh.
“These are wonderful, expansive interviews—at times brutal, at times breathtaking—with artists whose wit, intelligence, gaze, and insights are all sharp enough to draw blood. Judd Apatow understands as well as any of them the pain that holds the knife, and the glee that wields it.”—Michael Chabon
“Anyone even remotely interested in comedy or humanity should own this book. It is hilarious and informative and it contains insightful interviews with the greatest comics, comedians, and comediennes of our time. My representatives assure me I will appear in a future edition.”—Will Ferrell
