Alan Zweibel & Dave Barry

Alan Zweibel and Dave Barry have pretty good resumes when it comes to comedy. From "SNL" to "Curb Your Enthusiasm" to 22 years of humor columns and several dozen books, they've done just fine on their own. Now, they've teamed up to write the comic novel, "Lunatics," about two men whose disagreement over a kids' soccer game turns into a personal battle that escalates way out of control.

Alan and Dave joined me on KTRS/St. Louis today to talk about the book, why they decided to team up, how the writing partnership worked, and whether it's true that Steve Carrell wants to star in the movie version. We also discussed some of their other projects, including the Broadway version of "Peter and the Starcatchers" (Dave co-wrote those books with Ridley Pearson) and the Showtime series "Inside Comedy" (which Alan helped produce for David Steinberg).
