The Jung Center of Houston presents The Fine Line Between Humor and Heartbreak: The Power of Storytelling with Judd Apatow
The Jung Center's spring benefit will be a virtual event featuring writer/director/producer Judd Apatow.
Apatow writes and produces hilarious and beloved comedies that explore universal heartbreak, using humor as a vehicle to understand and reveal the collectiveness of our experiences. He uses the power of storytelling – and comedy – as catharsis, not just for his characters, but for us all.
As a fan of Jim Hollis, The Jung Center’s Director Emeritus, Apatow told The New York Times that Hollis' book, Why Good People Do Bad Things, can still be found on his nightstand. Apatow has written and directed such films as This Is 40, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, and Trainwreck. He also produced Academy Award-nominated The Big Sick, Bridesmaids, Anchorman, Step Brothers, Talladega Nights, and the Emmy Award-winning HBO series Girls.
