Funny People Interview with Seth Rogen

by at . Comments

MTV got a chance to do a short interview with Seth Rogen about his upcoming Judd Apatow flick, Funny People, at Comic-Con.  Again, for those of you out of the know, Funny People is Judd Apatow's take on the stand-up comedy world.  Below is an excerpt from the interview:

MTV: [Which jokes have made the cut?]
Rogen: “I bailed on ‘The Hills’ bit. I started doing stand-up and I’ve done it a few times and I don’t have any Hills jokes. I feel upset about that. I realized you don’t have to be smart to write a joke making fun of ‘The Hills.’ ‘The Hills’ makes fun of itself.”

MTV: [What will you fill the holes with?]
Rogen: “A MUCH more mature path.  Masturbation and testacles and things of that nature. I’m really branching. It’s very elevated comedy.”

MTV: [Will we see Judd Apatow doing stand-up comedy?]
Rogen “I don’t think so.  It could be funny to see him doing stand-up, but we didn’t have any plans for that.”
