Friday, November 21st, 8:30pm:
Comics Ever Mainard and Caitlin Bergh are proud to present their new storytelling show, The Last Book Review at The Last Bookstore in downtown Los Angeles. On November 21, 2014 at 8:30 p.m., the best storytellers, comics, and authors will come together to share humorous tales, personal essays and one very witty book review.
The debut lineup of The Last Book Review includes Moses Storm (Hulu’s 4 to 9ers), Shauna McGarry (writer for Anger Management), Michael Glazer (author of Trueth), Solomon Georgio (NBC Stand-Up for Diversity) and a humorous book review by Hans Holsen (The Blank Experience).
“When we were brainstorming about a storytelling show, the first thing that popped into my mind was a book review,” said co-host Ever Mainard. “I couldn’t stop thinking about how fun it would be to give comics free reign to make witty commentary about their favorite books. The Last Bookstore is the perfect place for it.”
Walking into The Last Bookstore is “like a trip into another world,” said KCRW. The 15,000 square-foot, cathedral-like store on the corner of 5thand Spring St. includes a $1 book room, vinyl LP and graphic novel shops, as well as shared space with the Spring Arts Collective. The Last Bookstore is one of the last places in L.A. where you can buy, trade, and sell used & new books, LPs, DVDs, and CDs.
“We are thrilled to bring the best performers in L.A. to one of L.A.’s most exciting spaces,” said co-host Caitlin Bergh. “This venue is a gem; we can’t wait for audiences to experience it if they haven’t already.”
