Michael Showalter, the writer and star of The State, Wet Hot American Summer, The Baxter, and Michael & Michael Have Issues, combines funny anecdotes, stories, jokes, observations, and graphic elements in his first book, Mr. Funny Pants.
Full of Showalter's odd charm, Mr. Funny Pants journeys into the deep (and not-so-deep) recesses of his creative mind to tell Showalter's story: his obsessions--creative and otherwise--his successes, and his failings.
Showalter teaches screenwriting at NYU Graduate Film School, writes a monthly column for the Chicago Tribune, and is working on a one-man show about his love of theater.
Michael Showalter is a comedian, actor, screenwriter, and comedy writer. He teaches at New York University's Film School and stars in the Comedy Central series, Michael & Michael Have Issues. He recently published, Mr. Funny Pants.
