BC – Hollywood Babble On LIVE

Ralph Garman & Kevin Smith appear at the Commodore Ballroom on Friday, May 11, 2018 at 7:30 PM for a live recording of their podcast HOLLYWOOD BABBLE ON!

Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman take a twisted look at showbiz news and bite the Hollywood hand that feeds them. Sometimes, they feel bad and give Hollywood a tetanus shot and some Neosporin, but, even then, they usually just turn around and bite Hollywood’s other hand. They can’t help it. It’s their nature. It’s like that “scorpion and frog” story. But, deep down, they’re just two nice East Coast boys… who happen to have a heavy dependence on drugs and alcohol, respectively.

NYC – Love That Bunch Signing

Pioneering feminist cartoonist Aline Kominsky-Crumb presents Love That Bunch (Drawn and Quarterly) autobiographical comics that chronicle the raw, dirty, and unfiltered thoughts of a woman coming of age in the 1960s. Kominsky-Crumb’s darkest secrets and deepest insecurities were all the more fodder for groundbreaking stories that crackle with the self-deprecating humor and honesty of a cartoonist confident in the story she wants to tell. Kominsky-Crumb appears in conversation with Naomi Fry, staff writer at The New Yorker, on Wednesday, May 9th at 7:00 PM.

MORE ABOUT LOVE THAT BUNCH:
Love That Bunch traces Aline Kominsky-Crumb’s life as a Beatles loving fangirl, an East Village groupie, an adult grappling with her childhood, an 80s housewife and mother, all the way up to a new 30-page story, “Dream House”, that looks back on her childhood. It is shockingly prescient while still being an authentic story of its era. Kominsky-Crumb was ahead of her time in juxtaposing the contradictory nature of female sexuality with a proud, complicated feminism. These comics thrum with anxiety and questions about femininity, identity, and family.
