Talking Funny: Ricky Gervais, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock and Louis C.K. on Comedy

Talking Funny is an HBO special that features a group of great comedians: Ricky Gervais, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock and Louis C.K..

The four of them talk about the mechanics of comedy, and go through a range of stories and jokes – talking in depth about what it is they actually do. As you can probably imagine, it’s hysterical – and an absolute joy to watch these four joke around (and try to make one another laugh).

I have to say – in addition to everyone being incredibly funny, I get such a delight in hearing Ricky Gervais laugh. There’s something about it, the sound and sense of child-like exuberance that just gets to me. When I hear him laugh, it doesn’t matter what else is being said… that sound just makes me want to laugh, too.

Not sure how legal these links are, and how long they’ll remain on YouTube. Watch it now, before it gets yanked…

  2. We started watching a bit of his show, but then fell off. I like his comedy, but didn’t get super into his show.Did you know he’s the writer, director and sole editor for the show? And that he doesn’t need to get script approval? There’s a pretty interesting article over at NY Magazine.
