Striking writers at the Academy


Judd Apatow, James L. Brooks and Larry Gelbart are scheduled to speak at the Academy Friday night and "crack the code of contemporary screen comedy during a candid roundtable discussion about influences, styles and other comedic niceties, offering up their collective insight into what makes 'funny business' work on screen."   

No, really. I'm sure that's what they'll talk about.

Tickets are $5; $3 for Academy members and students and can be ordered online. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 9 at 8949 Wilshire Blvd. For more info, call (310) 247-3600. — Dana Harris
