Description
"With this charming, sardonic debut, stand up comedian and actor Todd Barry makes readers laugh as hard as the audiences at his shows" (Publishers Weekly) in this hilarious book of travel essays from his time on tour in the US, Canada, and Israel.
Hello. It's Todd Barry. Yes, the massively famous comedian. I have billions of fans all over the world, so I do my fair share of touring. While I love doing shows in the big cities (New York, Philadelphia), I also enjoy a good secondary market (Ithaca, Bethlehem). Performing in these smaller places can be great because not all entertainers stop there on tour; they don't expect to see you. They're appreciative. They say things like "Thank you for coming to Hattiesburg" as much as they say "Nice show." And almost every town has their version of a hipster coffee shop, so I can get in my comfort zone.

My original plan was to book one secondary market show in all fifty states, in about a year, but that idea was funnier than anything in my act. So, instead of all fifty states in a year, my agent booked multiple shows in a lot of states, plus Israel and Canada.

Thank You for Coming to Hattiesburg is part tour diary, part travel guide, and part memoir (Yes, memoir. Just like the thing presidents and former child stars get to write). Follow me on my journey of small clubs, and the occasional big amphitheater. Watch me make a promoter clean the dressing room toilet in Connecticut, see me stare at beached turtles in Maui, and see how I react when Lars from Metallica shows up to see me at a rec center in Northern California.

I'd love to tell you more, but I need to go book a flight to Evansville, Indiana.

        February 6, 2017
        With this charming, sardonic debut, stand-up comedian and actor Barry makes readers laugh as hard as the audiences at his shows. The book recounts his comedy tour in secondary markets such as Oklahoma City; Iowa City; Tucson, Ariz.; and Syracuse, N.Y. What could have easily been a rote recitation of “flew into town, checked in, got coffee, did show” turns out to be anything but. Barry charmingly relates the day-to-day life of a comic on the road with his signature dry, laconic style of humor, showing genuine affection for the cities he visits and the audiences he encounters. Barry is continuously entertaining as he relates anecdotes such as visiting a bar owned and operated by the shock rock band Gwar in Richmond, Va.; dealing with inept promoters; and getting a police escort after a large show at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, N.Y. Barry deftly uses stories about a lack of toilet paper in the green room and hotel rooms with inoperative shades to play to his strengths, using deadpan commentary to sarcastically overstate his fame. Fans of Barry’s stand-up are sure to appreciate this tale of the comedian’s life in the smaller cities. B&w photos.
