  • You want funny? Show Sandler and Apatow the money...

    Premiere Funny People LA

    FOX News was at The Arclight Hollywood in Los Angeles last night for the premiere of the new comedy “Funny People.” We talked to director Judd Apatow (he of “40 Year-Old Virgin” and “Superbad” fame, to name just a couple) and star Adam Sandler (you know who he is), and asked them who were the funniest people in their lives.

    Apatow claimed his daughters were quite hilarious “because they still want to amuse people.”

    Apatow and Sandler, on the other hand, do not. “We’re burnt out,” said the director. “On the set, we’re boring.”


    Then he told us why…



    “Whenever we think of a joke, we think, why would I say that if no one paid me for it? And then we just sit in silence for hours.”

    “Yeah, yeah, oh yeah, me and Judd don’t try to be funny anymore,” Sandler agreed, in that strange way he talks. “That’s all. We gave it all out.”
