Overview

Every other Thursday on Santa Monica Boulevard's Comedy Central Stage, a motley assortment of prolific Hollywood writers, actors, and comics convene to reveal the most personal and colorful parts of their lives. Their soul-baring monologues reveal the sources of their creative genius, from wacky families, to psycho exes, random ramblings, and unbelievable Hollywood insights. This hilarious collection, featuring a foreword by Arrested Development's Mitch Hurwitz and Jim Vallely, includes some of their best confessions. It provides an inside scoop on Hollywood, including stories on mishaps at the Emmys, writing for popular shows, being put in a sleeper hold by Hulk Hogan, growing up in famous families, and what it s like to play Jan Brady. Funny, embarrassing, or dirty (or a combination thereof), but always brutally honest, Dirty Laundry shines a voyeuristic light on the underbellies of the people who have sold their souls to the entertainment biz.

Editorial Reviews

MITCH HURWITZ
"These unbelievably gifted, hilarious writer-performers (many of whom have appeared on Arrested Development) give those of us who still drink an insight into what a great AA meeting must be like. If you love other people's humiliation half as much as I do, sit down and do a load of Dirty Laundry." Mitch Hurwitz, Creator, Producer, and Writer, Arrested Development
Danielle Evenson
This book takes the best of the best, funniest of the funny and most tragic of the tragic and puts them all into one great package. There’s a story about George Carlin from his long suffering and stoner daughter. Laura Silverman talks about dating smelly douche bag. Richard Belzer tells the story of the night he almost lost his life to Hulk Hogan.It’s a good read, and most stories have survey questions perfect for your drunken book club.
