In 2016, comedy legend Garry Shandling’s unexpected death sent shockwaves through the entertainment world. Although he is widely remembered as a top stand-up comedian and the star of one of TV’s most innovative sitcoms, "The Larry Sanders Show," to those close to him, the "real" Garry Shandling is far more complex. Shandling's longtime friend and onetime mentee, Judd Apatow, has created a remarkable portrait of an iconic comedian in this revealing two-part documentary. The film features a wealth of insights from Shandling's personal diaries, along with reflections by his closest friends, family and collaborators. Multiple bonus features include extended interviews with Jim Carrey and spiritual leader Ram Dass, exclusive archival stand-up performances, a previously un-aired conversation with Jeff Goldblum, never-before-seen and extended conversation with Garry and Jerry Seinfeld, as well as a tribute performance of “Dear Mind” by Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam) and Judd Apatow, live from the Bonnaroo festival in 2016.
