Judd Apatow presents an emotional two-part in-depth look at the life, career and complex internal struggles of his loving mentor, the influential stand-up comedian and actor Garry Shandling, based on Shandling's personal diaries.
Judd Apatow remembered and honored his friend and mentor with this touching documentary where you could really feel and see the love from all he came in contact with during his career. I remember growing up and seeing Garry when he appeared on the Tonight Show and couldn't believe when he walked away from it. One of my all-time favorite HBO series was the Larry Sanders Show which for lack of a better description was sheer genius!
Simply put, Garry Shandling was an amazing performer who left us too soon and considered by many one of the best comedians ever to grace the stage and entertain us. Judd, you brought tears to my eyes when I watched this HBO special. Thank you for remembering and honoring Garry Shandling in such a manner!
