I started to get really annoyed half way into this book for one reason Judd Apatow isn t likeable He markets this book as a collection of interviews he has had with comedians and yet they aren t interviews at all It s mainly Judd Apatow forcefully interjecting his own complaints and experiences as a means of validating his own credibility to these celebrities It comes off as whiney and self depricating I would ve enjoyed the book if it had been purely focused on those he was interviewing rather than reading the SAME anecdotes about his life in every chapter I feel like Apatow considers himself to be the ring leader of the comedians of his generation but with multiple failures and few successes under his belt it s hard for him to justify this notion Oh and just for the record Funny People is awful
