Judd Apatow’s 2 Part Documentary “The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling” Premieres Tonight


It’s rare that you get such an in depth look not only into the mind of a comedian, but a deeper look into a being who simultaneously was one of the most beloved comedians of all time and sincerely pondering the meaning of it all and our connection to each other and the universe. 

That’s only possible because the late Garry Shandling kept plenty of notes and diaries for several years and Judd Apatow, a disciple of sorts of Shandling’s, wanted to make a documentary about him.

Here’s Apatow giving a bit of a taste of the doc on Conan.

With that in mind, you can catch the world premiere of The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling tonight and tomorrow on HBO at 8PM.
