Talking Funny

If you haven’t watched this special on HBO yet well..you can watch it here. It is just a conversation with 4 of the most popular comedians over the last 10-20yrs. What is interesting is all the parallels between art forms. You really get a sense of their process and all 4 are different or have different takes about their craft. Comedy is an art just like animation. Have a listen and think about how much it may sound just like what you have hears throughout your animation discussions.

Great stuff!
Enjoy!
