About Scrappy Little Nobody
“I’m excited to publish my first book, and because I get uncomfortable when people have high expectations, I’d like to use this opportunity to showcase my ineptitude, pettiness, and the frequency with which I embarrass myself. And while many of my female inspirations who have become authors are incredibly well-educated and accomplished comedy writers, I’m very, very funny on Twitter, according to Buzzfeed and my mom, so I feel like this is a great idea. Quick question: are run-on sentences still frowned upon? Wait, is ending a sentence with a preposition still frowned upon? I mean, upon frowned? Dammit!” —Anna Kendrick
Anna Kendrick’s autobiographical collection of essays amusingly recounts memorable moments throughout her life, from her middle class upbringing in New England to the blockbuster movies that have made her one of Hollywood’s most popular actresses today. Expanding upon the witty and ironic dispatches for which she is known, Anna Kendrick’s essays offer her one-of-a-kind commentary on the absurdities she’s experienced on her way to and from the heart of pop culture.

WORD Bookstores and Friends of the Loew’s is very excited to invite Jersey City and beyond to a night of laughter, books, and everything in between with comedians and authors Joel McHale and Will Forte on Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 8:00 PM. Tickets available at the link…
For years, Joel McHale’s stand-up performances have sold out venues across the country, and his role in the beloved cult series Community and as the host of E!’s The Soup have made him a household name in comedy and pop culture. This October, not only is Joel starring in CBS’s new series The Great Indoors, he will also bring his razor-sharp wit to book form with the release of THANKS FOR THE MONEY: How to Use My Life Story to Become the Best Joel McHale You Can Be.
You probably know Will Forte best as the creator and Emmy-nominated star of the critically-acclaimed FOX-TV’s hit Last Man on Earth, the lead in the cult-classic movie MacGruber, or as one of your favorite Saturday Night Live alums. But long before he became a famous comedian, a single, twenty-four-year-old Forte found his true purpose in life: giving men dating advice. This August, Forte, a forty-six-year-old bachelor, finally delivered his illustrated magnum opus, the master dating “guidebook” 101 THINGS TO DEFINITELY NOT DO IF YOU WANT TO GET A CHICK.
Join WORD Bookstore at Loew’s Jersey Theatre in celebration of the release of THANKS FOR THE MONEY and 101 THINGS TO DEFINITELY NOT DO IF YOU WANT TO GET A CHICK, as Joel and Will take the stage together for a bit of conversation and a lot of comedy.
Each ticket guarantees admission to the event as well as 1 copy of THANKS FOR THE MONEY and 1 copy of 101 THINGS TO DEFINITELY NOT DO IF YOU WANT TO GET A CHICK!
In addition, ever the community advocates and strong supporters of local public arts programming, Joel and Will are thrilled that $3 of each ticket sold will go directly to our friends and Jersey City arts space staple, Friends of the Loews/Loew’s Jersey Theatre.
Joel McHale is an actor, comedian, amateur knife enthusiast, and television host who starred on the acclaimed sitcom Community, the pop culture-skewering series The Soup, and the revival of The X-Files. He currently stars on the CBS series The Great Indoors – his most high-profile role since a breakout performance as Quicky the Clown on USA Network’s The Huntress. McHale has appeared in the movies Ted, Blended, Deliver Us From Evil, and The Informant!, and hosted the 2014 White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Born in Rome and raised in Seattle, McHale lives in Los Angeles with his wife, two sons, and many dangerous edged weapons.
Will Forte is an award-winning American actor, comedian, writer, producer and voice actor. He is best known for his work in television as a cast member on “Saturday Night Live”, and as the creator and star of the sitcom “The Last Man on Earth.” The drawings in 101 THINGS TO DEFINITELY NOT DO IF YOU WANT TO GET A CHICK landed him his first-ever TV writing gig on the Jenny McCarthy sketch show on MTV and then, later, landed him at “The Late Show with David Letterman.” So, they’re not ALL fun and games, just mostly.

After two New York Times bestsellers, Nick Offerman returns with the subject for which he’s known best—his incredible real-life woodshop. Nestled among the glitz and glitter of Tinseltown is a testament to American elbow grease and an honest-to-god hard day’s work: Offerman Woodshop. Captained by hirsute woodworker, actor, comedian, and writer Nick Offerman, the shop produces not only fine handcrafted furniture, but also fun stuff—kazoos, baseball bats, ukuleles, even mustache combs. Now Nick and his ragtag crew of champions want to share their experiences of working at the Woodshop, tell you all about their passion for the discipline of woodworking, and teach you how to make a handful of their most popular projects along the way.
