On June 4th, we’re returning to Open Door Sessions with one of our best loved, most familiar faces. John Hodgman, author, actor, podcaster, and semi-real judge, is coming back to Brookline–or at least, he’s appearing on screen. Of course, we like our Open Door authors to bring along a guest…but who’s joining Hodgman? You’ll have to stay tuned to find out.
Brookline Booksmith has a long history with John Hodgman, in that he long ago worked at the theatre across the street from our store (our beloved Coolidge Corner Theatre), and has since been to our store, or allowed us to sell his books elsewhere in Boston, many, many times.
The most important thing to know about this event is that John Hodgman will be at it. There aren’t many people who command a stage, energize an audience, and balance seriousness and wit with John Hodgman’s tireless precision. He’s a joy to watch, and you’re going to have a wonderful time.
John Hodgman is a writer, comedian, and actor. He’s written three books of fake facts (all bestsellers), two (factually and emotionally) true and funny books called Vacationland and Medallion Status, and many other short works. He has appeared on The Daily Show as a regular contributor, and he has been very famous as the human PC in the Mac vs. PC ads that started running in 2006.
Since then he’s appeared recurrently on several TV shows, done sell-out comedy shows throughout the US and Canada, and hosted over 460 episodes of the world’s best podcast (we are writing this and can say it). Judge John Hodgman settles serious disputes between real people, such as “Is a hot dog a sandwich?” and “Should we tell our children the TRUTH about Santa Claus.” He contributes a weekly column under the same name for The New York Times Magazine.
John Hodgman’s Guest is a total mystery.
Get ready to join John Thursday, June 4th.
