There's Something About Farrelly: A Conversation with Bobby Farrelly

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

While some comedy writers do their best to avoid scatological, profane, and 13-year-old-boy humor, Bobby Farrelly has trademarked it and elevated it to an art form. With his brother Peter, Bobby has spent over twenty years redefining broad comedy and giving millions of people a reason to laugh and groan with delight. With cult favorites like Dumb and Dumber, There’s Something About Mary, Shallow Hal, and Me, Myself & Irene under his belt, Bobby will discuss his career, his take on comedy, and when, if ever, to draw that line. So double up on hair gel and head on over. According to the map, it’s only four inches away.
