Billy Crystal and Alan Zweibel’s friendship goes back almost fifty years, to when they were both aspiring stand-up comedians in Manhattan.
The two recently collaborated as co-writers on their new film Here Today, which also marks Crystal’s return to directing. This funny, emotionally raw screenplay centers around veteran comedy writer Charlie Burnz (Crystal) who meets New York singer Emma Payge (Tiffany Haddish) and forms an unlikely yet hilarious and touching friendship that kicks the generation gap aside and redefines the meaning of love and trust. Join Zweibel and Crystal as they go behind the scenes of the movie – and their longstanding relationship – when they reveal all to Deadline’s Pete Hammond.
Here Today is in theaters now.
