Here’s what’s up: as comedians, we are often self-centered. It’s part of thinking by yourself and talking about yourself so much. A lot of us also grew up missing love or a steady home life. So my friend and fellow comedian, a giant of heart and actually physically a giant, Brock Wilbur and I made a book to benefit a local underfunded kids’ charity called KidSave.
It’s called Exquisite Corpse, and it features 31 LA comedians (including the director of Airplane!) each writing a chapter having only read the last paragraph of the previous chapter. Each chapter is in the voice of one comedian, and continues the same story… more or less. It’s weird, funny, sweet, gross, dark, hopeful, and vulnerable, a truly one-of-a-kind literary experiment made by some incredibly talented people, and edited by me and Brock. The amazing Brandon Vaughn did the art.
It’s only available until October 31st, and it only costs $9.99 (or just $5 for a Kindle version!) and all the money goes to helping kids grow up in loving families instead of in orphanages or in the foster care system.
If you need more reasons to buy one, here are 31 of them:
Allen Strickland Williams, Amber Kenny, Amber Tozer, Andy Sell, Aparna Nancherla, Barbara Gray, Beth Stelling, Brandon Vaughn, Brock Wilbur, Claudia Cogan, Dave Ross, David Schilling, DC Pierson, Ed Galvez, Eric Toms, Evan Gaustad, Galloway Allbright, Grant Pardee, Jerry Zucker, Josh Androsky, Klee Wiggins, Lauren Flans, Lisa Beth Johnson, Matt Ingebretson, Megan Koester, Nicholas Clark, Ron Babcock, Sofiya Alexandra, Sophie Kipner, Todd Masterson, Yassir Lester
