EVERY TICKET PURCHASED TO THE SHOW COMES WITH A COPY OF ROB DELANEY'S BOOK. TAKE A LITTLE PIECE OF ROB HOME WITH YOU.
Join us on November 14 at 7pm as Unabridged Bookstore hosts at The Music Box Theater Rob Delaney in support of his new collection of insanely funny autobiographical essays, Rob Delaney: Mother. Wife. Sister. Human. Warrior. Falcon. Yardstick. Turban. Cabbage. In his bookRob talks about childhood, fatherhood, sex, addiction and recovery, Rob regales readers with anecdotes as wide-ranging as his youthful obsession (and pen pal relationship) with heavy metal band Danzig to drunken bungee jumping off the Manhattan Bridge, from his court-ordered stint in rehab to witnessing the miracle of his son’s birth. Tracing his journey from middle class theater geek, to public menace, to devoted family man and passionately engaged model citizen, these essays (interspersed with some of his “Greatest Tweets”) make clear why Rob is so beloved. If you have never seen Rob Delaney live you are in for a night you will not soon forget.

His followers are not the only ones who think he is hilarious—Comedy Central, Rolling Stone, the Huffington Post, Vice, Paste, and Funny or Die have named him one of the funniest people on Twitter. He has appeared on Jimmy Kimmel, Conan, and Chelsea Lately and he regularly sells out shows across the country. His tweets along with his stand-up have made him a white-hot comedy superstar. His widely tweeted essays on addiction, depression, a woman’s right to choose, and the U.S. health care system, among other subjects, signal a true writer who has something to say—and can say it well.
