Maybe We'll Have You Back: The Life of a Perennial TV Guest Star
Fred Stoller has played the annoying schnook in just about every sitcom you"ve seen on TV"Friends, Everybody Loves Raymond, Scrubs, Hannah Montana, My Name Is Earl"and was even a staff writer for Seinfeld, but he"s never found a solid gig. When it comes to Hollywood, it"s a case of always the bridesmaid and never the bride, except in his case he"s always the snarky waiter, the mopey cousin, or Man #2.
This hilarious and bittersweet rags-to-rags story of the hardest-working guy in showbiz follows Fred, who started his career as a stand-up comic, from set to set as he tries to find a permanent home for his oddball character. With candor, Fred shares stories of his great adventures pounding the Hollywood pavement, including a humiliating encounter with Billy Crystal, a disastrous one-night stand with Kathy Griffin, and plenty of awkward run-ins at craft service tables. And he always shares his ups and downs with his skeptical yet loving mother waiting by the phone in Brooklyn.
Standing Up: A Memoir of a Funny (Not Always) Life
In the spirit of Carrie Fisher"s Wishful Drinking and Chelsea Handler"s Chelsea, Chelsea Bang, Bang, comes Marion Grodin"s hilarious memoir of a Hollywood childhood, teenage years of drugs and sex, and sober adult life on the stand-up circuit.
Marion Grodin, daughter of funnyman Charles Grodin, knows firsthand that laughter is truly the best medicine, having not only survived breast cancer and divorce, but also, various addictions"including an inappropriate relationship with Haagen Dazs. Her hilarious riffs include: the story of growing large breasts that appeared seemingly overnight (unfortunately this happened during the summer that she spent on the set of King Kong with her father and Jeff Bridges on whom she developed a huge crush); and her post-divorce life, its slight weight gain, and how she relied on her wise sup port group, her cats "Baby Fighter" Edmond and "fashionably sporty, forensic expert" Snuggles.
In this cleverly written memoir Marion integrates her diverse and challenging life experiences and unstoppable ability to make everything funny in a way that is both entertaining and helpful.
