Stand-Up Comedian Cameos in Funny People Revealed

Sarah Silverman / Dave Attell / Norm MacDonald

It's starting to look more and more like Judd Apatow's Funny People will be the ultimate stand-up comedian movie that may be a new comedy classic. As everyone already knows, Adam Sandler stars in the film as a stand-up comic and is joined by fellow comedians Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill. In addition to those two, however, a handful of other stand-up comics will make a cameo, as SlashFilm has discovered today. Dave Attell, Sarah Silverman, Norm MacDonald, and Andy Dick will all have cameos in the film, potentially as themselves. Attell revealed that the scene was shot quickly and was highly improvised.

I know we're giving Funny People a lot of love very early on, but it's hard not to when it just sounds like a genuinely fantastic film. Apatow has continually outdone himself with his own films, starting with 40 Year Old Virgin and followed by Knocked Up. Now he's making a movie about stand-up comics, a past that he's very familiar with. I'm actually a big fan of Dave Attell and love Sarah Silverman and Andy Dick as well. Norm MacDonald is also a hilarious guy and has been missing from movies for a while as well. It'll be great to see these four back on the big screen, even if it's just for a quick cameo. Bring on the Funny People!

Sarah Silverman?! She's the one person that I've never found funny. Replace her with Ellen Degeneres please.

Ellen?! Not that I have anything against her, but she's NOTHING like Silverman! Odd replacement suggestion... 🙂

Sarah Silverman? Funny? What an oxymoron....

Lisa Lampanelli would have been a better suggestion.

i heard thiis movie is supposed to be a dramedy. well i hope its got more luaghs then tearjerking moments. bruce springsteen's also allegedly making a cameo so that should be interesting. oh and andy dick's not funny unless someone's beating his ass up or kicking his out of a nightclub

Andy Dick was hilarious on "News Radio". Sure he's a dick, but if the man wants to be funny, he can be. I also love Norm McDonald and Sarah Silverman.

Let's not give it too much love as to jinx it, despite the fact this movie only seems to get more awesome each month, first with Judd writing and directing Adam Sandler and giving us an awesome rest of the main cast, following that up with the fact that friggin Janusz Kaminski is doing the cinematography for this, then giving a teaser poster as a means to promote the movie early and announce a contest for someone to be in it, and now the stand up comedian cameos.

Where the heck is the funniest man on the planet Jim Carrey!?! he doesnt do stand up anymore but neither does Seth Rogen!

On my main cast bit of my last comment, I had hoped Paul Rudd and my favorite actress Jenna Fischer would be put in the main cast alongside my favorite actor Adam Sandler.
