Jeff Garlin Puts It All Out There
Jeff Garlin had no idea when he helped come up with the idea that became ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ two decades ago that he would be starring the show’s 10th season this coming January. In this episode, Jeff reveals that season 10 features his “favorite” premise yet and talks about the process of putting together his new Netflix stand-up special ‘Our Man in Chicago,’ which includes some of the most personal material of his career. There are stories about daring ‘The Goldbergs’ to fire him after he made someone on set uncomfortable, his 2013 arrest for felony vandalism that he says led to the end of his marriage and a lot more.Follow @mattwilstein on Twitter and @jeffgarlin and @lastlaughpod on Instagram. Highlights from this episode and others at The Daily Beast.

Judd Apatow Takes on Comedy’s ‘Civil War’
Writer, director, producer and stand-up comedian Judd Apatow invites us into his L.A. office for an in-depth conversation about all things comedy. We talk about his new Garry Shandling book and working on his upcoming film with Pete Davidson. Judd also weighs in on the so-called “civil war” in comedy, from fired SNL comic Shane Gillis—who called him “gayer than ISIS” in one of his controversial rants—to Louis C.K., who he thinks still deserves “criticism” for making fun of the Parkland shooting survivors. Plus, Judd looks back on some of his biggest movie hits and reveals the funniest person he’s ever worked with.Follow @JuddApatow and @mattwilstein on Twitter and @lastlaughpod on Instagram. Buy ‘It’s Garry Shandling’s Book’ on Amazon.Read Matt’s profile of comedian Gary Gulman at The Daily Beast.Highlights from this episode and others at The Daily Beast.
