Stanley Tucci made his film directorial debut with Big Night, in which he also starred. He's since appeared in dozens of films and TV programs, from The Lovely Bones to Monk.

And he's directing the revival of the 1989 farce Lend Me A Tenor, playing at Broadway's Music Box Theatre in New York, to great reviews. The show stars Tony Shalhoub, Anthony LaPaglia and Justin Bartha.

Tucci talks with host Neal Conan about his first experience directing a play, and the value of farce in tough times.
