PR Gervais, Louis C.K., Seinfeld, Rock in Talking Funny on HBO Apr 22

HBO



The quartet reveal the secrets of their success, share hysterical anecdotes and jokes and remind each other of the valuable lessons they’ve learned along the way (including how to shamelessly pilfer each other’s material). Each comic answers questions such as: “Who was the first funny kid you ever met?,”  “When is it time to add new material to your act?” and “How do you know when you’ve hit on the proverbial ‘thing’ that sets you apart?,” giving quirky insights into what rocketed them to being the best in the business and at the top of their game.

For Immediate Release March 22, 2011

COMEDY STARS RICKY GERVAIS, LOUIS C.K., JERRY SEINFELD AND CHRIS ROCK HOLD AN INTIMATE GROUP CONVERSATION ON THE HBO SPECIAL Talking Funny, DEBUTING APRIL 22

What does it mean to be a successful comedian? How far can the boundaries of taste be pushed to get a laugh? Four top comics – Ricky Gervais, Louis C.K., Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock – discuss and debate their craft on the laugh-filled HBO presentation Talking Funny, debuting FRIDAY, APRIL 22 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT). Ricky Gervais is executive producer of the special.



Other HBO playdates: April 27 (9:00 p.m.) and 30 (2:35 a.m.), and May 3 (midnight), 9 (11:15 p.m.) and 12 (1:30 a.m.)

HBO2 playdates: May 1 (10:00 p.m.), 5 (3:00 p.m., 11:00 p.m.), 10 (11:00 a.m.), 14 (3:30 a.m.), 20 (7:00 p.m., 1:00 a.m.) and 26 (3:05 a.m.)



The quartet reveal the secrets of their success, share hysterical anecdotes and jokes and remind each other of the valuable lessons they’ve learned along the way (including how to shamelessly pilfer each other’s material). Each comic answers questions such as: “Who was the first funny kid you ever met?,”  “When is it time to add new material to your act?” and “How do you know when you’ve hit on the proverbial ‘thing’ that sets you apart?,” giving quirky insights into what rocketed them to being the best in the business and at the top of their game.

The comedians also examine their own distinctive styles of comedy and discuss whether or not to use profanity, how one comic can recycle another comic’s material into something new and fresh, and deciding whether a topic is off-limits, no matter how shocking it may be to the audience. When the dust settles and the spotlights are on, it all comes down to giving the audiences what they paid for – the laugh.

Talking Funny was directed by John Moffitt; producers, Pat Tourk Lee, John Moffitt, Matthew Harvey; supervising producer, Benn Fleishman; executive produced by Ricky Gervais.
