ESSENCE: Why did you want to work with Kevin?

FERRELL: Kevin’s comedy is so accessible. He represents the every man—when you hear Kevin do stand-up, you’re so comfortable listening to him because it’s like, Oh, my God, I can relate to this guy. I think that we share the same generosity. More than making people laugh, I like laughing myself. Kevin’s the same way. It’s almost more fun to make each other laugh.
