This is an interesting watch that I unearthed this morning. In the early part of the century, before he brought the Iron Man franchise to the big screen Jon Favreau hosted a TV show called Dinner For Five. This was a particularly interesting one that consisted of Favreu, Illeana Douglass, Will Ferrell, Eddie Izzard, and Louis C.K..
Watch it over as Eddie Izzard takes on cross dressing during his stand-up, Favreau and Ferrell discuss their location scouting for the movie they were about to shoot called Elf, and a non-black shirt wearing C.K. discussing the ups and downs of making Pootie Tang, being associated with many black comics, and his early thoughts on “the Louis C.K. deal” where he works on projects for less money in order leverage more creative control. It’s a collection of some very funny people and plants the seeds which are being currently sown by many of them.
