Listen: Over 2 Hours Of Interviews With Judd Apatow, Plus Over 25 New 'Trainwreck' Photos

In case you were unaware, writer/director Judd Apatow was a comedy-obsessed teenager who somehow finagled his way into interviewing some of comedy’s greatest stand-ups. Back then, comedy culture wasn’t what it was today, so it was easy for a 15-year-old Apatow to score interviews with folks like Jerry SeinfeldMartin Short, and other comedians of that stature in the 1980s.

“Back then I was alone and I had a little confidence about it because I felt like: ‘This is my thing. This is the only thing that only I know about,'” he told NPR recently. Apatow has turned those early conversations, plus more recent talks with peers like Louis C.K., Chris Rock, and Lena Dunham into a new book called “Sick In The Head.”
