Judd Apatow assembled an eclectic mix of talents for his three-hour “Comedy and Music Hour” benefiting Los Angeles tutoring org 826LA on Thursday.
“The mood’s about to change,” Apatow warned after a comedy bit featuring Paul Reubens. “Bob Newhart, Pee-wee Herman, RZA — that’s the natural progression.”
To everyone’s surprise, RZA performed a gentle piano medley before breaking into hardcore rap.
“I think my daughters are learning an important message tonight: Wu-Tang Clan ain’t nothin’ to mess with,” joked Apatow. Later, 9-year-old Iris Apatow introduced Ray Romano with the line, “I just want to say this next comedian is way funnier than my dad.”
