Judd Apatow: Why Big Budget Comedy Is Dead

Can you think of a single comedy movie from last year? I can’t. Something’s changed in Hollywood and the entire genre of comedy movies is disappearing. In this video we’re going to look at what’s happening in comedy by looking at one of it’s biggest players, Judd Apatow, and see how he has adapted along with the industry.

Judd is known for directing big hits like the 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up and Superbad. But like many comedians, he started out as a staff writer for TV. He was one of the co-creators of the Ben Stiller Show and he got some amazing experience working on the Larry Sanders Show, which is where he debuted as a director too.

His career took off with two TV series, Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared. He multi-tasked as a writer, producer and occasional director and set the theme for a lot of his career where he would tell fairly realistic, relatable stories about immature people trying to learn how to grow up.

If you look at all the comedy movies that have made over 100 million dollars, adjusting for inflation, Apatow has been involved in 8. Very few people can match that. In fact, only Adam Sandler has more.

To learn how times have changed and why Judd doesn’t make big budget films anymore watch the video.
