“With this fascinating, sardonic debut, get up comic and actor Todd Barry makes readers snort as exhausting because the audiences at his presentations” (Publishers Weekly) on this hilarious ebook of trip essays from his time on excursion in the United States, Canada, and Israel.
Hello. It’s Todd Barry. Sure, the massively well-known comic. I’ve billions of fanatics in every single place the sector, so I do my justifiable share of traveling. Even as I like doing presentations within the large towns (New York, Philadelphia), I additionally revel in a just right secondary marketplace (Ithaca, Bethlehem). Acting in those smaller puts can also be nice as a result of no longer all entertainers prevent there on excursion; they don’t be expecting to peer you. They’re appreciative. They are saying such things as “Thanks for coming to Hattiesburg” as much as They are saying “Great display.” And nearly each the town has their model of a hipster espresso keep, so I will be able to get in my convenience zone.
My authentic plan was once to ebook one secondary marketplace display in all fifty states, in a couple of 12 months, however that concept was once funnier than anything else in my act. So, as an alternative of all fifty states in a 12 months, my agent booked more than one presentations in a lot of states, plus Israel and Canada.
Thank You for Coming to Hattiesburg is phase excursion diary, phase trip information, and phase memoir (Sure, memoir. Just like the object presidents and previous kid stars get to jot down). Observe me on my adventure of small golf equipment, and the occasional large amphitheater. Watch me make a promoter blank the dressing room rest room in Connecticut, see me stare at beached turtles in Maui, and spot how I react while Lars from Metallica presentations as much as see me at a rec middle in Northern California.
I’d like to let you know extra, however I wish to cross ebook a flight to Evansville, Indiana.
