Judd Apatow’s New Book Features Lena Dunham, Seinfeld, and Louis C.K

Back in high school while Judd Apatow was hosting a campus radio show, the 16-year-old was privileged enough to interview some of his favorite comedians including Jerry Seinfeld, John Candy and Harold Ramis.

As he got older, his fascination for comedians and asking them both person and professional questions never ceased. Over the last 30 years, Apatow has interviews dozens of comedians-both up and coming and legendary.

In his upcoming book entitled ‘Sick in the Head’, Apatow will publicly release some of the best segments from those decades of interviews.

The New York Times has released a partial list of celebrity guests that will be featured in the book including Mel Brooks, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Lena Dunham, Louis C.K, Amy Schumer, Roseanne Barr, Steve Allen, Jay Leno, and Spike Jonze. The book will feature a total of 25 interviews.

‘Sick in the Head’ is Apatow’s second book following 2011’s ‘I Found This Funny’, a collection of humour pieces he edited.

The title, ‘Sick in the Head’, was named after a rejected TV show pilot Apatow submitted to Fox in 1999.
