Matthew Inman, Eisner Award-winning creator of The Oatmeal and #1 New York Times bestselling author of How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting To Kill You is definitely not impressed by the new addition to your family. Why My Cat Is More Impressive Than Your Baby hilariously outlines why. He appears at the Strand on Thursday, June 6, 2019 at 7 PM.

With useful guides such as “10 ways to befriend a misanthropic cat” and “How to hold a baby when you are not used to holding babies,” Inman’s clever wit and incisive humor is signature Oatmeal.
The Oatmeal’s popularity is remarkable, and Inman’s Internet influence undeniable. With more than 7 million visitors to The Oatmeal.com each month, 4 million+ Facebook fans, and nearly 1 million Instagram followers, his position as a leading web comic creator is secure and continues
