NJ – An Evening with Will Forte & Joel McHale

0000_word-forte-mchale

Press Release:

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.

It features in-depth examinations of each era of the characters’ extensive history: The Golden Age (beginning with the Shield, the first patriotic super-hero, who pre-dated Captain America by a full year), the Silver Age (spotlighting those offbeat, campy Mighty Comics issues, and The Fly and Jaguar), the Bronze Age (with the Red Circle line, and the !mpact imprint published by DC Comics), up to the Modern Age, with its Dark Circle imprint (featuring such fan-favorites series as “The Fox” by Mark Waid and Dean Haspiel). Plus: Learn what “MLJ” stands for! Uncover such rarities as the Mighty Crusaders board game, and the Shadow’s short-lived career as a spandex-clad superhero!

Paul Castiglia has written, edited and promoted comics for such diverse publishers as Archie, DC, Dark Horse, Event, Antarctic Press and others. His credits include Archie’s Weird Mysteries, DC Showcase, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Tex Avery comics, Sonic the Hedgehog, Rise: Comics Against Bullying from and War of the Independents #4. Coming soon is a back-up story for KING, from Blacklist Press. Paul is also a film historian who speaks at classic film screenings, and a movie producer whose first film, Bowery Rhapsody, a documentary about the Dead End Kids, East Side Kids and Bowery Boys is currently in post-production. Also upcoming from Paul is the book Scared Silly – a compendium of reviews of classic horror-comedy movies. Paul will be signing copies of the TwoMorrows Publishing book, The MLJ Companion, co-written with Rik Offenberger and Jon B. Cooke, which charts the history of Archie’s superheroes, and includes a cover by colored by Glenn Whitmore.

Glenn Whitmore is a graduate of the Kubert School (1987) and has established himself as a reliable professional colorist in the comics business. His first assignment was DC Comics’ Hawk & Dove mini-series. Soon after, he became the colorist on the Superman titles between 1988 and 2000 including The Death of Superman, The Return of Superman, The Marriage of Superman & Lois Lane as well as other DC titles like Flash, Justice Society and Power of Shazam.
