Chris Gethard Tells Us About Meeting Judd Apatow On 'You Made It Weird' At SXSW (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

At SXSW this year, Chris Gethard had one of the most surreal moments a comedian could dream of -- Judd Apatow told him that he bought his book and joked about turning it into a movie.

On "You Made It Weird," Pete Holmes' comedy chat podcast, Gethard found himself on a panel of comedians that included the late addition of Judd Apatow. Apatow was in Austin for the premiere of the HBO series "Girls," which he produced, and agreed to join in the fun the day before. During the show, Apatow revealed that he picked up Chris' book earlier, coming as a shock to the New York based comedian and actor. Holmes, who Chris gently refers to as "not the most restrained" comedian, then pointed out that Judd could turn Chris' book into a movie if he so desired.

We caught up with Chris the next day to find out his reaction to the show. Special thanks to the Austin Chronicle for letting us use their space at the Austin Convention Center.
