Arts Fill My Empty Word Balloon
Next Wednesday, the 19th, I’m going to be interviewing Harvey Pekar onstage at Town Hall. You should go, because Harvey’s a lot of fun when he has an audience (just ask Letterman), and you should also go because his newest book is the weirdest biography you’re ever likely to read—equal parts sarcastic bitchslap and attentive hagiography, depending on how you look at it. Unlike so many of the comics greats, Harvey is doing his best work right now.
Further, if you have a question you’d like me to ask Harvey, you should Comment or send me an Electronic Mail. It doesn’t matter if your experience with him begins and ends with the American Splendor movie, now’s your chance to get that intimate or embarrassing Harvey Pekar question asked in a public forum by someone who’s not you. (Namely, me.)
