Bob Odenkirk is a legend in the comedy-writing world, winning Emmys and acclaim for his work on Saturday Night Live, Mr. Show with Bob and David, and many other seminal TV shows. This book, his first, is a spleen-bruisingly funny omnibus that ranges from absurdist monologues (“Martin Luther King, Jr’s Worst Speech Ever”) to intentionally bad theater (“Hitler Dinner Party: A Play”); from avant-garde fiction (“Obituary for the Creator of Madlibs”) to free-verse poetry that's funnier and more powerful than the work of Calvin Trillin, Jewel, and Robert Louis Stevenson combined.

Odenkirk's debut resembles nothing so much as a hilarious new sketch comedy show that’s exclusively available as a streaming video for your mind. As Odenkirk himself writes in “The Second Coming of Jesus and Lazarus,” it is a book “to be read aloud to yourself in the voice of Bob Newhart.”

At first I’d no idea, unsure what I’d found, some old thing worth nothing, thought I— nothing world renowned… But now I know it’s a Pollock and here’s how I know— all the splotches of paint

stop listening to music completely as you turn fifty and become enamored of talk radio and the rantings of your favorite pundit, or when your “favorite” band reunites for “one last tour” and you pay too much to see them and they just sound like crap, and Neal Peart looks like the angry neighbor who called the cops on you when you were a teenager. I promise you will get sick of your favorite music right now, no matter how much you like it. However, you can always get a tattoo of “Weird Al”

key element in the birth of The Birthday Boys on IFC. As an actor, Bob has had memorable roles as the agent Stevie Grant on The Larry Sanders Show, the character of Saul Goodman on AMC’s Breaking Bad, as well as in Alexander Payne’s Oscar-nominated film Nebraska. He will reprise his Breaking Bad role in Better Call Saul, a new spin-off series on AMC. Bob’s comedy scripts and short essays have appeared in the New Yorker, VICE, Filter, and elsewhere.

with a mohawk haircut pushing a baby carriage in Central Park and, without considering the consequences, I muttered, “Look out, Mommy’s on the warpath.” Angelisse laughed, the baby cried, two dogs jumped into the pond, a couple of boats capsized, and three horses went bonkers, tossing the policemen from their saddles. It was a nightmare scene that would have made Heironymus Bosch say, “You’re fucking kidding me.” At that moment, a part of me died—it was the exact part of me that had been

completely compromised due to overbuilding and LACK OF RESOURCES. The entire grid is compromised and cracking, its weakness showing everywhichawhere. There is a solid three-foot-in-diameter brick of pavement at the end of my street which is being pushed UPWARD, teetering, literally TEETERING on the PEPPER TREE ROOT that is growing violently upward underneath it. This is scraping the BOTTOMS of cars. Including MINE. Somebody FIX IT! 2B. CHEMISTRY has also failed and bewildered us as a people, and
