When Garry Shandling died in 2016, he was widely remembered as a top stand-up comedian and the star of two of the most innovative sitcoms in TV history. But to those who knew him, the “real” Garry Shandling was a far more complex person. A self-proclaimed “spiritual warrior,” Shandling challenged himself to transcend his own insecurities, despite having achieved so much in the face of loss, betrayal and tragic twists of fate. Now, Shandling’s longtime friend and onetime mentee Judd Apatow has created a remarkable portrait of this iconic comedian in a revealing two- part documentary on HBO. The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling utilizes a wealth of insights from Shandling’s personal diaries, along with reflections by his closest friends, family and collaborators. From childhood tragedy, to professional betrayal and unexpected physical trauma, to his emergence as a powerful teacher and guiding spirit for a new generation of talent, this enlightening portrait not only chronicles one man’s ability to survive the ups and downs of a life in show business, but also offers a profound investigation into the power of comedy to elevate the human spirit.
