P as in Pneumonia

There is a long article on Mike Nichols and Elaine May [2] in the Judd Apatow-edited comedy issue of Vanity Fair. The writer, Sam Kashner, intrudes on the story too much for my taste and I think his cop-out at the end of the piece is inexcusable (even if it is tactful). You’ve got two of the sharpest, funniest people around, you can’t cop out, man. Ask the damn question.


Still, the piece provides a detailed look at the short but dazzling career of Nichols and May.
