Whitney Cummings discussing book w/ Neal Brennan; Dave Chappelle doing New Year’s Eve with John Mayer
Comedian, writer, and actress Whitney Cummings has a new book, I’m Fine…And Other Lies, which is out October 3:
Here are all the stories and mistakes I’ve made that were way too embarrassing to tell on stage in front of an actual audience; but thanks to not-so-modern technology, you can read about them here so I don’t have to risk having your judgmental eye contact crush my self-esteem. This book contains some delicious schadenfreude in which I recall such humiliating debacles as breaking my shoulder while trying to impress a guy, coming very close to spending my life in a Guatemalan prison, and having my lacerated ear sewn back on by a deaf guy after losing it in a torrid love affair. In addition to hoarding mortifying situations that’ll make you feel way better about your choices, I’ve also accumulated a lot of knowledge from therapists, psychotherapists, and psychopaths, which can probably help you avoid making the same mistakes I’ve made. Think of this book as everything you’d want from the Internet all in one place, except without the constant distractions of ads, online shopping, and porn.
You can see Whitney talk about the new book with comedian and Chappelle’s Show co-creator Neal Brennan at NYC’s Gramercy Theatre on October 3. Tickets, on sale now, come with a copy of the book and post-show meet-and-greet. That’s the first date of Whitney’s book tour — which include three shows at Largo in Los Angeles — and all dates are listed below.
Speaking of Chappelle, Dave is throwing a New Year’s Eve Party in Los Angeles with his buddy John Mayer called “Controlled Danger” at The Forum (12/31). The night will feature solo sets from Chappelle and Mayer doing their respective things, and then a collaborative set featuring “songs, stories, improvised dancing, and more.” Tickets for “Controlled Danger” are on Chase cardmember presale now and go on sale to the general public on Friday, Septmber 29 at 10 AM Pacific.
