HBO has restored my faith in humanity and that people can, when presented with the chance, make the world a more beautiful place. HBO is in the process of making a one off talk show called Talking Funny. It will star Ricky Gervais talking with comedy Super Duper Awesome Hilarious Reason Why 90% of Comedians Got Into The Business In The First Place Amazing Crazy Cryin’ Comedy Stars Louis CK, Chris Rock and Jerry Seinfeld. Here’s what you can expect:
Louis CK, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld and Ricky Gervais = The Best Show Ever
Producers of Talking Funny say it will be ‘the meeting of the most important comedy minds in the world, with an insight to how they have achieved their success, what they think of each other’s talents and their viewpoints on the world of comedy’.
In other words, it’s like giving any fan of comedy a virtual comedy hand job. And not the “dirty paid for it from a person who barely speaks English” kind. The “pretty girl who’s a little embarrassed at first but then totally gets into to the point where it’s almost kind of scary” kind. That time of virtual comedy hand job, to which I say, “yes please”.
The show will be filling here in NYC this fall so if you have an extra ticket, hook a fella up. No date as of yet on when it will air, but whenever it is, it’s not soon enough.
