Chris Gethard, whose truTV show was sadly canceled, has a new book, titled Lose Well, which will be out October 16. Its subject is near and dear to his heart:

I wrote a new book! It’s got a lot of funny stories in it. It’s also got a lot of the philosophy that I’ve developed for my life in general as well as my career as I’ve spent two decades figuring out how to chase my dream via trial and error.

This is a book that I specifically hope speaks to people who feel like no one believes in them, sometimes not even themselves. If you have some crazy dream you want to chase, some crazy risk you want to take, this book encourages you to take that swing. Not because you’ll succeed; you probably won’t. But you’ll learn so much about the world and what’s in your guts in the process.

If you pre-order Lose Well, as a thank-you, Chris will "send you a video message, an audio file you can use as your outgoing voicemail message, or he’ll call you directly for a two-minute chat!"

Chris will celebrate Lose Well's release with an evening of stand-up at Brooklyn's The Bell House on October 17. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday, September 14 at 10 AM. The Bell House event page mentions "The Lose Well Tour," but this is the only date we've seen announced. He does, however, have upcoming live tapings of his Beautiful Anonymous podcast. All dates are listed, along with a stream of the most recent "Beautiful Anonymous," below.
