Simon Pegg appears for a signing Presented by Forbidden Planet and Strand
Hosted at the Strand Monday, June 13: 7:00PM – 8:00PM
Best known for his cult hits Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Spaced, his portrayal of Scotty in the 2009 Star Trek film and the recent Paul, Simon Pegg is an actor, comedian, writer and self-proclaimed super geek. In his new memoir, Nerd Do Well: A Small Boy’s Journey to Becoming A Big Kid, Pegg brings his fans back with him to his childhood in England, recounting tales of running into brick walls, discovering Star Wars, Star Trek and comic books and ultimately leads readers through his life to the making of his hit films. Pegg’s memoir is a who’s-who of pop culture references, film history, and witty anecdotes about being a kid in the 70s and proves that Pegg is, indeed, a super geek of the highest order.
Please note: seating will begin at 6pm. Seating is first come, first served.

SIMON PEGG signs his autobiography NERD DO WELL at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Saturday 23rd October from 4 – 5pm.
Simon Pegg is an actor, comedian, screenwriter, producer and author. Best known for his roles in Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, he also plays Scotty in the Star Trek franchise. Simon lives in London with his wife and daughter. This is his first book.
Zombies in North London, death cults in the West Country, the engineering deck of the Enterprise: Simon Pegg has been ploughing some bizarre furrows in recent times. Having blasted onto the small screens with his now legendary sitcom “Spaced”, his rise to nation’s favourite son status has been mercurial, meteoric, megatronnic, but mostly just plain great. From his childhood (and subsequently adult) obsession with Star Wars, his enduring friendship with Nick Frost, and his forays into stand-up which began with his regular Monday morning slot in front of his 12-year-old classmates, this is a joyous tale of a homegrown superstar and a local boy made good.
Forbidden Planet is the largest store of its kind in the world. Some of the biggest names in Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Comics and Cult Entertainment have come to our London Megastore for signing events, including: Jonathan Ross, Kevin Smith, Sam Raimi, Guillermo del Toro, Terry Gilliam, Christopher Lee, Andy Serkis, William Gibson, Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett and Stephen King.
