NC – An Evening with Tony Hale

hale-anbtActor Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development) makes an exclusive Raleigh engagement on Saturday, November 8th from 6:00 – 9:00 pm. Co-sponsored by Quail Ridge Books & Music and the NC State University Department of Social Work

Raleigh is excited to welcome Emmy-award winning actor Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development) for an exclusive engagement at the Hunt Library on Centennial Campus at North Carolina State University. The event will be held on Saturday, November 8th, from 6:30-8:30pm, with Hale discussing his acting career and his new children’s book, Archibald’s Next Big Thing. Prior to the event there will be a VIP reception, proceeds from which will benefit the NC State Social Work Enhancement fund. Books will be sold at the event.

Released by Boxing Clever Publishing, Archibald’s Next Big Thing is the extraordinary adventure of an extra-ordinary chicken named Archibald Strutter as he takes off on a fantastic journey in hopes of finding his NEXT BIG THING. Through new friends and experiences, the wide-eyed, semi-bald chicken finally discovers that, while looking for the next big thing isn’t a bad thing, we should always remember that big and beautiful things are all around us…right NOW.

Regarding the inspiration for the book, Hale said, “The thoughts of an actor aren’t very different from Archibald’s. I always find myself looking ahead to the next big role, the next big opportunity, obsessed with the question, “What’s next, what’s next, WHAT’S NEXT!?’ But embracing and enjoying the PRESENT is a message I want both my daughter and myself to remember. Every. Single. Day.”

CA – Judy Greer Signs

jg041714Judy Greer appears at Book Soup on Thursday April 17, 2014 at 7:00 pm to discuss and sign her new memoir I Don’t Know What You Know Me From: Confessions of a Co-Star.

About the book:
ou know Judy Greer, right? Wait, what was she in again? The Wedding Planner, 13 Going on 30, 27 Dresses, The Descendants. Yes, you totally recognize her. And, odds are, if you’re like most women in America, you feel like she’s already your friend. Thankfully, Greer has finally written a book of essays about all the moments, topics, observations, and confessions that you would hope to hear from your best friend. How a midnight shopping trip to CVS can cure all? What it’s like to have stepchildren? And how she “really” feels about her mother? Yes, it’s all in there. But Judy Greer isn’t just a regular friend-she’s a celebrity friend. Want to know which celebs she’s peed next to? Or what the Oscars were actually like? Or which hot actor gave her father a Harley Davidson? Don’t worry–that’s included, too. Besides being laugh-out-loud funny, you’ll love her because she makes us genuinely feel like she’s one of us. Because even though she sometimes has a stylist and a make-up artist, she still wears (and hates!) Spanx. Because she starts her book like this: “This is who I am. This is what I think about things. This is stuff that happened to me, that could have just as easily have happened to you. I’m not that special, and we’re probably not that different. I think I am really lucky to be where I am in life, but I’ve never really lost that feeling that I don’t fit in, and if you have, will you please email me and tell me how you did it? I’m serious.”

About the Author

Judy Greer was born in Detroit and studied at The Theatre School, DePaul University’s prestigious theater conservatory program. She is one of the most prolific actresses of her time, appearing to date in over eighty roles across film and television. Greer recently starred in the Oscar-winning film The Descendants and will next be seen in the remake of Carrie. No stranger to the small screen, she voices Cheryl (Carol) Tunt on the cult hit Archer and can currently be seen in Arrested Development as Kitty Sanchez. On stage, Greer recently made her Broadway debut in Dead Accounts. She stars in her own Yahoo! series called Reluctantly Healthy. Greer currently resides in Los Angeles.

hsnBob Odenkirk and David Cross with Brian Posehn appear at the Powerhouse Arena on Tuesday September 10, 2013 from 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm! Tickets available at the link! SOLD OUT!!

Press Release:

Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, the co-creators of the highly influential, Emmy-nominated HBO sketch program Mr. Show, will discuss their collection of never-before-seen scripts, storyboards and unaired sketches with co-star and co-writer Brian Posehn. Tickets are $8 and can be applied as credit towards the purchase of a copy of the book. The authors will not sign anything other than copies of HOLLYWOOD SAID NO!

About HOLLYWOOD SAID NO!:

This fall, Bob & David are finally back together after all these years (and embarking on their first official tour together since a sold-out national tour in 2002 following the end of Mr. Show, their highly influential, Emmy-nominated HBO sketch program) with a collection of never-before-seen scripts that were so funny they made Hollywood wet its ninny-pants. HOLLYWOOD SAID NO! reveals the amazing full-length scripts for Bob and David Make a Movie (fleshed out with brand-new storyboards by acclaimed artist Mike Mitchell) and Hooray For America!: a satirical power-house indictment of all that you hold dear.

And there’s more! HOLLYWOOD SAID NO! will also include a section of “constructive” notes written by a “studio executive,” a bonus section of orphaned sketch ideas from the Mr. Show days and beyond, suitable for performance by church groups that aren’t all “koo-koo” about religion. And last but not least (well, possibly least), Bob & David provide a section of reminiscences to add context and back story on what went right and what went wrong. For the first time ever, take a peek at the scripts that didn’t get the green light from Hollywood and ponder a world we can only dream about.

Press Release:

Harvard Book Store is pleased to welcome BOB ODENKIRK (Breaking Bad) and DAVID CROSS (Arrested Development) for a discussion of their book Hollywood Said No!: Orphaned Film hsnScripts, Bastard Scenes, and Abandoned Darlings from the Creators of Mr. Show.

Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, creators of HBO’s classic sketch comedy show Mr. Show, present to you this collection of never-before-seen scripts and ideas that Hollywood couldn’t find the gumption to green-light. Simply put…

HOLLYWOOD SAID NO!

Since Mr. Show closed up shop, Bob and David have kept busy with many projects–acting in fun, successful, movies and TV shows, directing things, and complaining about stuff that didn’t turn out well to anyone who would listen, and even alone, in silence, inside their own heads. Hollywood Said No! reveals the full-length, never-before-seen scripts for Bob and David Make a Movie (fleshed out with brand-new storyboards by acclaimed artist Mike Mitchell) and Hooray For America!: a satirical power-house indictment of all that you hold dear. This tome also includes a bonus section of orphaned sketch ideas from the Mr. Show days and beyond, suitable for performance by church groups that aren’t all koo-koo about religion. Hollywood Said No!, is chock-full of comic twists, turns, and maybe a few hard truths. We said “maybe,” but what we mean was “probably not.”

Now, for the first time, take a peek at the scripts that didn’t get the go-ahead and ponder a world we can only dream about…and beyond!

IFC’s hit comedy series, Portlandia and The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret will make their first ever New York Comic Con appearances for two back-to-back panels on Sunday, October 16th starting at 11:00am.

Portlandia’s creators, writers and stars, Fred Armisen (Saturday Night Live), Carrie Brownstein (Wild Flag, Sleater-Kinney) and Jonathan Krisel (Saturday Night Live, Tim and Eric Awesome Show) will appear to discuss the show’s highly anticipated second season and take questions from the audience.
