Michael Ian Black is one of my all-time favorite comedians who has quickly become one of my favorite authors as well. His new book “Navel Gazing” is a very personal and emotionally honest work that might surprise those who only know him from his on-stage persona. We discussed his writing process for the book, how he feels more comfortable about himself as he gets older, and his ultimate goal for book-related talk show appearances.Follow @bigwakeupcall
Michael Ian Black is a very famous comedian and actor who is also a prolific author of children’s books, and he called in to discuss his latest, “Cock-A-Doodle-Doo-Bop,” about a scat-singing rooster who wants to change his tune. We had a very entertaining chat about what inspired him to write books for children, how this story came about, and if he insisted on “name above the title” billing.
Ever since I first saw him on “The State” in the mid-90s, Michael Ian Black has been one of my favorite comedy performers. We discussed his work in “Stella” and his new show on TBS, “Trust Me, I’m a Game Show Host.” Winners receive $240 worth of pudding.Follow @bigwakeupcall
