Review: Judd Apatow, “The Return” on Netflix

Judd Apatow just released his first stand-up special this week at age 50, after only returning to stand-up comedy stages three years ago. Of course, if you read The Comic’s Comic, then you already know how Apatow hasn’t left the comedy game at all since diving in as a teenager, and it’s just that you’ve heard Apatow’s jokes and thoughts over the past two decades via sitcoms and movies instead of from his mouth on a club or theater stage.
