Pick of the Day: Joe Pera + Joe Bennett: A Bathroom Book for People Not Pooping or Peeing 5/25
One of the calmest and most reassuring presences in comedy and, really, anywhere is that of Joe Pera and as we’re still very much in some of the most chaotic times of our lives. In his own stand-up or on his own series, Joe Pera Talks With You, Pera deftly manages to be soothing as so damn funny.
So, Pera has written a book with illustrator Joe Bennett wonderfully called A Bathroom Book for People Not Pooping or Peeing But Using the Bathroom as an Escape that is sure to imbue a sense of peace, especially if you’re indeed holing up in your bathroom without really having to use it (which we’re sure makes up a significant percentage of people’s time spent in quarantine).
They’re doing a virtual book event for The Strand Book Store on Tues. May 25th at 5PM PT/8PM ET that will even be more relaxing and, again, a hoot at the same time.
Get your copy of the book, starting at $21.99, and access for the event here. FYI, the first 100 tickets will include a signed bookplate by both authors.
