Hollywood Said No!: Bob and David Do a Book Tour

mrshow.jpgYou young whippersnappers might be most familiar with David Cross and Bob Odenkirk from Arrested Development and Breaking Bad (respectively), but us old fogies know them best as comedy duo Bob & David from the glorious mid-'90s HBO sketch comedy show Mr. Show with Bob and David. You wee toddlers may think it strange to see Tobias and Saul hit the road together on a book tour, but we octogenarians are squealing and clapping our hands like little children.

Cross and Odenkirk and Mr. Show guest star Brian Posehn are coming to Chicago to promote their book Hollywood Said No!: Orphaned Film Scripts, Bastard Scenes, and Abandoned Darlings from the Creators of Mr. Show. The subtitle says it all, really. Lovers of Mr. Show will undoubtedly enjoy the comedy stylings of rejected film scripts Bob and David Make a Movie and Hooray for America! as well as sketch ideas that never quite made it to production... not to mention the incomparable joy of getting to see Bob and David together on stage again.

The Hollywood Said No! tour will be at UP Comedy Club, 230 W. North Ave, 3rd floor, on Saturday, September 21 at 1pm. Doors open at noon. Tickets are $22 and include a copy of the book.
