Jerry Seinfeld, Ricky Gervais, Louis C.K., and Chris Rock are all going to sit down and shoot the shit for an hour or so for HBO’s upcoming special “Talking Funny.” The quartet will wax poetic on all things comedy, from their specific approach to writing and performing, to their experiences in the entertainment industry.
Each comic answers questions such as: “Who was the first funny kid you ever met?,” “When is it time to add new material to your act?” and “How do you know when you’ve hit on the proverbial ‘thing’ that sets you apart?,” giving quirky insights into what rocketed them to being the best in the business and at the top of their game.
Sounds interesting. Obviously it’d be better to see any one of these four actually performing instead of just talking about performing, but in a medium like television that’s usually a wasteland when it comes to stand up, I’ll take what I can get. “Talking Funny” airs Friday April 22nd at 9pm on HBO.
