Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul, Breaking Bad, Mr. Show) signs his new book at Powell’s City of Books at Thursday October 30, 2014 at 7:30 pm!
NOTE: As with all Skylight Books events, this reading is free and open to the public (first come, first served). But because we’re expecting a large crowd at this event, we’ll be giving out numbered tickets to the signing line to keep things organized. To get a ticket to the signing line, you must purchase a copy of A Load of Hooey here at Skylight Books. Tickets will be available starting September 30, 2014. They will be available in-store, or you can order on our website and leave a note in the “Order Comments” field. We will also hold a ticket for you if you order and pay for a book over the phone. In addition to books, you may bring one item of memorabilia to be signed (but no pieces of paper please). Due to time constraints, Bob Odenkirk will be unable to pose for photos with individual attendees, though you are welcome to take photos during the event and from the line. Please also refrain from making an audio or video recording of the event. Thank you for your cooperation!
Bob Odenkirk is a legend in the comedy-writing world, winning Emmys and acclaim for his work on Saturday Night Live, Mr. Show with Bob and David, and many other seminal TV shows. This book, his first, is a spleen-bruisingly funny omnibus that ranges from absurdist monologues (Martin Luther King, Jr’s Worst Speech Ever) to intentionally bad theater (Hitler Dinner Party: A Play); from avant-garde fiction (Obituary for the Creator of Madlibs) to free-verse poetry that’s funnier and more powerful than the work of Calvin Trillin, Jewel, and Robert Louis Stevenson combined.
Odenkirk’s debut resembles nothing so much as a hilarious new sketch comedy show that’s exclusively available as a streaming video for your mind. As Odenkirk himself writes in The Second Coming of Jesus and Lazarus, it is a book to be read aloud to yourself in the voice of Bob Newhart.
