The Value of Nothing in the US

The Value of Nothing, US Cover

I’m on tour in the US! Truth be told, I’ve been on tour for a week, appeared on National Public Radio, and West Coast Live (like Prairie Home Companion, but funnier and with fewer banjos), and have cropped up at a the Commonwealth Club, and a bookstore or two in the San Francisco Bay Area. But now I’m on the road, hitting Boston, New York, Washington DC, Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles with the book in hand.

The book itself is not an unmitigated disaster. It has kind (and starred) review from Publishers Weekly, was a book of the week in the UK Observer, and garnered kind words from Naomi Klein and Michael Pollan. Do check it out if you can. It’ll be in libraries, independent book stores and, if you must, online (in which case, please do leave a review here). Hell, even GQ liked it.

But if you’re around Boston, New York, Washington DC, Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles or San Francisco, and able to make it in person to hear The Value of Nothing: The Stand Up Comedy Routine, here’s where I’ll be in the coming weeks:
