I try not to get caught up in summer movie hype, because most everyone else does, but here are a couple of online video interviews that start out talking about movies, but also manage to inform us a little bit about comedy. First up, Maxim.com talks to director Adam McKay about that "Funny or Die" movie, Step Brothers, starring Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly. What? It’s not a Funny or Die movie? Sure seems like one. And McKay talks openly about how the entire premise and much of the movie just came from them goofing around and improvising.
Next, here is a TV Guide.com (or is it tvguide.com?) interview with Judah Friedlander that starts out as a typical junket talk about Meet Dave, in which Friedlander co-stars with Eddie Murphy, but then ends with some talk about Friedlander’s stand-up act and New York comedy clubs.
