Bob Odenkirk Unloads ‘A Load of Hooey’
This year, Breaking Bad’s Saul Goodman, I mean, Bob Odenkirk, wrote a book, called A Load of Hooey. To promote this masterpiece of comedy, he’s going on a nationwide tour comprised of readings and book signings and good, old-fashioned comedy shows with opening act Brandon Wardell. They’ll start on October 25 in Portland, OR at Powell’s before visiting Seattle, WA; San Francisco, CA; Los Angeles, CA; Pasadena, CA; Milwaukee, WI; Minneapolis, MN; Chicago, IL; and New York, NY (for a show at the Gramercy Theatre). You won’t know what to expect at the readings—special guests, sketches not included in the book, and “special yammerings” could all be included. For more information on show specs (i.e., reading or comedy show) and on-sale dates, visit Odenkirk’s website.
Bob Odenkirk is best known for co-creating the HBO comedy show Mr. Show with Bob and David (with David Cross), and, more recently, for portraying Walter White’s lawyer, Saul Goodman, on AMC’s Breaking Bad. A spin-off, Better Call Saul, is set to air next year and has already been picked up for second season. He’s directed three movies: 2003’s Melvin Goes to Dinner; 2006’s Let’s Go to Prison; and 2007’s The Brothers Solomon.
