Carell / Steinberg

Though both started out as student's of Chicago's improvisational comedy scene in Second City, Steve Carell and David Steinberg have taken very different paths. While Carell is well known for his talents onscreen in "The Office" or films like Date Night, Steinberg's talents have mostly been behind the camera directing for series like "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Mad About You." But now Deadline report the two are teaming up for a currently untitled documentary on the evolution of comedy which will look back at 60 years of laughs. As someone who's always taken notice of the comedic trends fluctuating every ten years or so, this is great news.

So to really get to the core of comedy and how it has changed over the years, Steinberg has been interviewing comedians young and old to really make this documentary shine. Such names include Mel Brooks, Don Rickles, Carol Burnett, Jerry Seinfeld, Ellen DeGeneres, Judd Apatow, Robin Williams, Sarah Silverman, Tina Fey, Jane Lynch and many, many more. Carell said, "We're honored that so many legendary comedic performers have chosen to be part of this." In standard comedic fashion, Steinberg followed, "Short story: Carell's career floundering. I throw him a bone. End of story."Frankly, I'm just glad this bone is getting tossed our way. How about you?
