On Thursday, October 3rd, I went to McNally Jackson Books on Fulton Street in New York City for the party of the year – comedian/author/musician/actor/radio host/ Dave Hill celebrated the release of his third book
Parking the Moose: One American’s Epic Quest to Uncover His Incredible Canadian Roots which is available RIGHT NOW in a variety of formats – click here for details!.
A few months ago, Dave and I chatted about his new book, and you can listen to that exhilarating interview by clicking here.
ABOUT PARKING THE MOOSE
Dave was joined by Mike Sacks, author of Poking a Dead Frog and And Here’s the Kicker: Conversations with 21 Humor Writers About Their Craft. Currently on the editorial staff of Vanity Fair, he has also written for the New Yorker, the New York Times, Esquire, GQ, McSweeney’s, Vice, and Salon. Mike was an excellent host and what followed was a fun and entertaining evening of great conversation and hilarious comedy.
Dave Hill also released a companion podcast called So..You’re Canadian on the Maximum Fun Network, in which Dave attempts to get to know our neighbors of the north, one Canadian at a time.
He’ll also attempt to answer questions like “Who are the Tragically Hip, and what exactly do they want with us?” , “What is curling, and perhaps more importantly, why is curling?”, and last but not least, “How could a country so close to the United States manage to be so very different from us?”
New episodes of So…You’re Canadian come out every Tuesday – subscribe on iTunes, Stitcher, or wherever you get incredible podcasts!
If THAT weren’t enough, Dave recorded a song about the book, AND made a music video to go along with it. (Full disclosure: this song has been stuck in my head for weeks!)
