Alan Zweibel (Opening Night)
November 30 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Join author Alan Zweibel as he presents his book Laugh Lines: My Life Helping Funny People Be Funnier.
Throughout the pages of Laugh Lines, Zweibel weaves together his own stories and interviews with his friends and contemporaries, including Richard Lewis, Eric Idle, Bob Sagat, Mike Birbiglia, Sarah Silverman, Judd Apatow, Dave
Barry, Carl Reiner, and more. The book also features a charming foreword from his friend of 45 years, Billy Crystal, with whom he co-wrote and coproduced the film Here Today starring Crystal and Tiffany Haddish. Laugh Lines is a warmhearted cultural memoir of American comedy.
