I Found This Funny: My Favorite Pieces of Humor and Some That May Not Be Funny at All (McSweeney's)
Filmmaker Judd Apatow (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up) will sign the new humor collection he edited, I Found This Funny! NOTE: This event was originally promoted as a discussion and signing, but due to time constraints, Judd Apatow will be signing only.
We are expecting a crowd for this event, and are trying to make this as streamlined a process as possible. To help keep things running smoothly, please read the following carefully:
- We will be issuing numbered signing line tickets to this event. The numbers will correspond to your place in line. These will be available starting Friday at 10 a.m.
- To get a signing line ticket, you need to purchase one of Judd Apatow's books at Skylight Books (if you've already purchased one of his books here, just bring in your receipt and we'll give you a ticket). In addition to I Found This Funny, we'll have a selection of his published screenplays. You do have to buy something here to enter the signing line.
- You can bring other previously purchased items to be signed or purchase multiple books to be signed; however, if you are having 4 or more items signed, please wait at the back of the line as a courtesy to other customers who are only having a few items signed. (You'll still need your signing line ticket to get into the line, but the number won't be relevant since we'll ask that you hang to the end of the line while others pass through.)
- Please call with any questions or to order a signed copy -- (323) 660-1175 -- thanks for your cooperation, and enjoy the event!
