Playing Steve Carell Praises Wife and Creative Partner Nancy: ‘She Makes Me Laugh More Than Anybody’

Steve Carell and his wife Nancy are going behind the camera with their dynamic wit as co-creators of TBS' new screwball cop comedy Angie Tribeca.

ET sat down with the creative couple at the TCA Winter Press Tour on Thursday, where they hilariously explained their work dynamic.

"She makes me laugh more than anybody," the 53-year-old former Office star gushed about his wife. "We didn't start thinking we're going to write a show. We just came up with this name that was really dumb and it just kept making us laugh… and the more we talked about it, the more it made us laugh!"

The couple -- who met while they were correspondents on The Daily Show -- kept the laughs coming as conversation turned to the Golden Globes. Steve joked about how his marriage might improve if he wins for his role in The Big Short.

According to Steve, if he won a Golden Globe he "might finally gain my wife's love and approval."

"Well you already won one, so that was good for 10 years," Nancy joked. "But it's worn off."

Steve took home a Golden Globe for Best Actor in 2006 for his celebrated role on The Office.

Angie Tribecca premieres with a 25-hour, ad-free "binge" marathon of every episode on January 17th at 9 p.m. on TBS.
