Last week, I went to the book release party for Matty Goldberg's Brain Humor, a memoir about being an outcast nerd, getting a brain tumor, doing comedy in New York and LA, and losing your best friend. Okay, that sounds real depressing, hunh? But I promise, it's not a tearjerker. Matty handles everything with a frankness and humor that makes it all okay, and even okay to laugh.
The release party was fun. It had a bit of a high school reunion vibe, with many of Matty's old New York comedy buddies on the show and in attendance. Ted Alexandro added some fun by doing an impromptu reading from a randomly selected chapter of the book. And one of the characters from the book (and one of Matty's regular bits), Eduardo the drug dealing neighbor (now a legitimate tattoo artist), was in attendance.
So, give it a read.
