Funny

Judd Apatow.


His generous take on human nature and carefully dosed slapstick bring to mind the best stuff of Bill Murray, Woody Allen and Preston Sturges. It's nice to have a guy who knows that the funniest parts aren't mean or manic, but happen when people are just being themselves.

Even if it took 7 years since Freaks and Geeks/Undeclared for this guy to be recognized, I'm cool with that.

I cried like a little girl when both shows were taken off the air--almost as many tears as when My So-Called Life was too.

dmbm: Undeclared is wonderful...

blythe: Your hair smells like onions.

butters: That's okay. This post wasn't constructive. Saying Judd Apatow is funny is like saying ice cream tastes good. I just wanted to say something nice in case some Samberg-lover commented about what a hater I am, etc. Then I could say, "See? Not a hater. I like Judd Apatow."
