"As the comedy canon becomes haphazardly codified by the Internet hordes, it’s nice to have the somewhat old-fashioned Lowbrow Reader as a standard bearer, taking things at a more measured pace, giving images more than the scant glances they get onscreen. Blogs and podcasts and digital shorts will rise and fall, but Knotts, Rickles, Wilder—perhaps even CARtoons—will outlive them all."
Join us in celebrating The Lowbrow Reader Reader next Tuesday, May 29 with guests Adam Green (Moldy Peaches), The Daily Show’s Wyatt Cenac, teenage girl-band Supercute! (which features Rachel Trachtenburg, of the Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players), weirdo comedy beatnik legend Professor Irwin Corey, as well as readings from the book. You WILL laugh.
