Humorist Larry Doyle at Book Cellar

Humorist and former Chicagoan Larry Doyle recently dropped into Lincoln Square neighborhood Book Cellar for a reading from his latest title, Deliriously Happy. Doyle, known for his writing in publications including the New Yorker and Esquire, as well as for a stint on the comedy writing team behind the Simpsons, gave a hilarious reading. We managed to capture some of it on video, and thought we'd share a little of our audience-eye view on the event:
