In the Netflix Special Judd Apatow – The Return, Apatow, the writer, director and producer of some of my favourite comedies is returning to standup after 25 long years.
I myself didn’t even know that Apatow was a standup comic long before several of his best hit movies. There’s The 40-Year-Old Virgin (2005), Knocked Up (2007) and This Is 40 (2012), to name just a few…
I like how this trailer is all about the other people echoing any doubts that Apatow himself likely had about returning to standup. It seems as though, this way if his show turns out to not be so great, that in itself will kind of be part of the comedy… maybe. I of course would prefer for the show to be fantastic. Even if it has been 25 long years since he stepped on a stage to make people laugh.
Judd Apatow – The return Release Dates: December 12th, 2017 (US) – Netflix.
