Netflix Comedy Special – Judd Apatow: The Return (Trailer)
Netflix has launched the official trailer for its upcoming original comedy special Judd Apatow: The Return, set to
premiere December 12.
Apatow, who stopped doing stand-up in 1992, is returning to the stage after 25 years to prove he’s still got it. The trailer features him on stage revealing a conversation he had with his daughter before taking on this challenge and the support she offered. “I said to my daughter “I don’t know if I can do this, I’m getting really nervous. And she goes: “Then don’t do it, dad. Don’t do it!” Another joke is related to his celebrity status. “It’s amazing I can draw a crowd, isn’t it? If I’m walking down the street and somebody says ‘Are you Judd Apatow?’, if I say ‘No’, they go ‘Alright’. – he says.
The trailer also features appearances by Ronny Chieng, Chris Gethard, Mike Birbiglia, and Amy Schumer, comedy fellows who don’t have encouraging messages for Apatow.
Apatow, the guy who brought you “The 40-Year-Old Virgin”, “Trainwreck”, “Bridesmaids”, and more, said he stopped doing stand-up because he created “The Ben Stiller Show”.
