Stealing Cars or Sporting Goods? (with Judd Apatow)

Subscribe to Lemonada Premium for Bonus Content

When Judd Apatow was in sixth grade, he knew he wasn’t like the other kids. While everyone else played sports, he would come directly home from school to watch shows like M*A*S*H, The Odd Couple, and Monty Python. Sam asks Judd about his choice to write jokes for comics twice his age, where his unearned confidence came from, and how to stay humble in Hollywood. Plus, they swap crime stories, from changing the price tags on racquetball racquets to… stealing cars?

Check out his new book, “Sicker in the Head: More Conversations About Life and Comedy.
