Editorial Reviews

Review

“I can’t stop reading it. . . . I don’t want this book to end.”—Jimmy Fallon
 
“An essential for any comedy geek.”Entertainment Weekly
 
“Fascinating . . . a collection of interviews with many of the great figures of comedy in the latter half of the twentieth century.”—The Washington Post
 
“Open this book anywhere, and you’re bound to find some interesting nugget from someone who has had you in stitches many, many times.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times
 
“An amazing read, full of insights and connections both creative and interpersonal.”The New Yorker
 
“Fascinating and revelatory.”—Chicago Tribune
 
“For fans of stand-up, Sick in the Head is a Bible of sorts.”Newsweek
 
“This exploration of what it really means to be funny, day in and day out, is for the comedian in everyone.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)
 
“Incandescent . . . an irresistible, ultimate-insider’s comedy-interview extravaganza . . . [Judd] Apatow never loses his unabashed fan’s enthusiasm even as he asks canny questions that yield superbly illuminating conversations rich in shop talk and musings on the lure, demands, and resonance of comedy.”Booklist (starred review)
 
“If Apatow’s gift for comedy is a sickness, may he never be cured.”Playboy
 
“Sprawling and insightful . . . The candidness of the interviews also exposes the peculiar community of comedians with anecdotes and cameos unlikely to be heard elsewhere. A delightful and hilarious read for anyone interested in what makes comedians tick.”Kirkus Reviews

“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
