Judd Apatow (director of mostly funny movies and TV) and Dave Eggers (Zeitoun, editor of McSweeney's -- do we we need to go on?) throw a star-packed bash for the debut of I Found This Funny, a new anthology of humor writing curated by Apatow. Contributors include Nora Ephron, Paul Feig, Jonathan Franzen, Steve Martin, Lorrie Moore, Conan O'Brien, David Sedaris. The extremely staggering lineup of performers includes Lindsey Buckingham, Josh Homme, Randy Newman, Garry Shandling and Aziz Ansari. Proceeds from the book and the event go to Eggers' 826 National writing and tutoring program.
