After Lorne Michaels discovered them in the late eighties, The Kids in the Hall created a groundbreaking television series which ran from 1989 to 1995 on CBC in Canada and on HBO and CBS in the United States. After the Kids left television in 1995, Scott and the boys went on to write and star in their own feature film, the cult favorite Brain Candy. Thompson appeared as a regular for three years on Garry Shandling’s revolutionary comedy series The Larry Sanders Show as Brian, the assistant to Hank Kingsley. In this period and afterwards, he made numerous guest appearances on various talk shows such as Politically Incorrect, The Late Show with David Letterman, and was a regular fixture on Late Night with Conan O’Brien.

Thompson along with Paul Bellini, is the author of Buddy Babylon: The Autobiography of Buddy Cole, a hilarious memoir of one of Thompson’s most famous characters, bon vivant Buddy Cole. He has appeared in such feature films as Ron Ronnie Run, The Pacifier, and Mickey Blue Eyes and such television series as Hannibal, Reno 911!, Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Carpoolers, The Odd Squad, Man Seeking Woman, Touched by an Angel, and Degrassi High.

Sean Penn appears at the Free Library of Philadelphia on Thursday, March 29th from noon till 2:00 PM to present his new novel Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff. Get tickets here…

The winner of two Best Actor Oscars for his performances in Mystic River and Milk, Sean Penn is also an acclaimed writer, producer, and director with more than 100 theater and film productions to his name. He is also an acclaimed journalist, with work appearing in The Nation, the San Francisco Chronicle, Rolling Stone, and The New York Times, among other periodicals. A political activist and humanitarian, he has reported from on the ground during elections in Iran and war in Iraq, and he has conducted exclusive interviews with former Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, Cuban President Raúl Castro, and Mexican drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán. In his debut novel, Penn spins the darkly comic tale of a nondescript, disillusioned jack-of-all-trades—septic tank salesman, pyrotechnics expert, and contract killer for a shadowy U.S. intelligence agency—who decides to fight back against some of America’s most deeply entrenched monoliths.

VA – The Best We Could Do Signing

Press Release:

Telegraph Art & Comics is proud to welcome artist Thi Bui on Friday, March 23rd from noon till 1:30 PM as part of the Virginia Festival of the Book!

Thi Bui will be reading from her latest, the graphic novel memoir The Best We Could Do, followed by a discussion of her work. We will have copies of her books available for purchase, or you may bring books you already own to have signed.

To learn more about Thi Bui’s work, please visit


This beautifully illustrated and emotional story is an evocative memoir about the search for a better future and a longing for the past. Exploring the anguish of immigration and the lasting effects that displacement has on a child and her family, Bui documents the story of her family’s daring escape after the fall of South Vietnam in the 1970s, and the difficulties they faced building new lives for themselves.

At the heart of Bui’s story is a universal struggle: While adjusting to life as a first-time mother, she ultimately discovers what it means to be a parent—the endless sacrifices, the unnoticed gestures, and the depths of unspoken love. Despite how impossible it seems to take on the simultaneous roles of both parent and child, Bui pushes through. With haunting, poetic writing and breathtaking art, she examines the strength of family, the importance of identity, and the meaning of home.

In what Pulitzer Prize–winning novelist Viet Thanh Nguyen calls “a book to break your heart and heal it,” The Best We Could Do brings to life Thi Bui’s journey of understanding, and provides inspiration to all of those who search for a better future while longing for a simpler past.
