What does this comedy about black comedians mean?
Comedian and writer Tom Hanks is set to appear on a new series of “Comedy with Tom Hankas,” which will be released on October 8, 2018.
“Comedians in trouble are not going to get away with that kind of behavior,” Hanks said in a statement on Tuesday.
“Tom is an extraordinary, gifted comedian, but it’s not about being funny.”
He added, “He was the one who broke through to me in the beginning and taught me that humor can be cathartic.
It can be a way to get through tough times.”
Hanks’ new series, which was previously announced in October 2018, will focus on two black comedians: Tom Segura and Toni Collette.
Hanks, who also stars in the upcoming “Saving Private Ryan,” is a longtime supporter of Collette, who recently said she feels “more comfortable” with Hanks as a friend.
The two have had a longstanding friendship, Hanks told Entertainment Weekly in February 2018, and Hanks has a long history of mentoring Collette in her career.
“I think he’s a good guy,” Collette told EW in February.
“He’s a very good friend.
He has really good heart.
He’s been through a lot.
And I’ve had a lot of experiences with Tom.
I have a lot in common with Tom.”
Collette and Hank have a history of friendship, including during the filming of “Saved Private Ryan.”
“I knew him from ‘Saving’ and then ‘The Social Network,’ and that’s when I met him,” Collett said at the time.
“It was the first time that we had actually met in real life.
He was a great guy and he’s an incredible actor.
I just feel like he’s got a lot going on right now.
He is one of the most intelligent, wonderful people I’ve ever met.
I hope he does well.”
Hank and Collette were both nominated for Emmys for their work in “The Social Networks,” which was directed by Hanks.
“This is not a project that I’m involved in.
I haven’t been involved with it.
I’ve been really busy,” Collet said at Variety in February, before noting, “I haven’t had the pleasure of working with Tom in a very long time.”
Collett also recently opened up about Hanks on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
The actor added, “[Hanks] is such a wonderful human being.
He just does a wonderful job with a lot more energy than you think he does.
I think he just gets so much out of being around other people and working on his craft and trying to help other people.
And he does it with such grace.
He does it so effortlessly.”
