Billy Crystal to Bring Back SNL Characters for New Show THE COMEDIANS

Crystal appeared on Saturday Night Live from 1984 to 1985. He has also starred in The Princess Bride, When Harry Met Sally, Analyze This, Monster's Inc, Analyze That, Monster's University, and more. His Broadway credits include 700 Sundays, which he also wrote.
In The Comedians, Crystal plays veteran comedian who is forced to work with Gad's character, a much raunchier comic. Much of the humor stems from their clashing egos and the large age gap between them. The Comedians gives an inside look at late night comedy shows.
