 John Hodgman…Live in Seattle

As you are well aware John Hodgman is a writer, a wonderfully funny humorist, expert, and former literary agent who calls New York City home. John Hodman has served as the Humor Editor for the New York Times Magazine, is frequent contributor to “This American Life,” he is an advice columnist for McSweeney’s, comic book reviewer for the New York Times Book Review, and a freelance journalist specializing in food, culture, non-wine alcohol, “Battlestar Galactica,” and most other subjects that he can use to say something meaningful about the human experience.

When John Hodgman wrote a book of invented trivia and completely fake facts entitled THE AREAS OF MY EXPERTISE he was asked to appear on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”, where he still continues to provide commentary as the show’s Resident Expert. That first appearance was the moment he unexpectedly become a comedian and famous minor television personality, appearing as the “PC” in a series of television ads for Apple brand computers, and guest roles as “the person wearing glasses” in a variety of films and TV shows, including “Coraline,” “Community,” “Battlestar Galactica” (a show he once wrote about as a journalist). Additionally, he appeared as Jason Schwartzan’s nemesis, Louis Greene on all three seasons of HBO’s “Bored to Death.”

There are now two bestselling books that have followed THE AREAS OF MY EXPERTISE, concluding his “COMPLETE WORLD KNOWLEDGE” trilogy in 2012 with the apocalyptic THAT IS ALL. As a comedian, he has headlined at clubs and theaters around the country, including the San Francisco Sketchfest. Interestingly he is also a two-time main stage speaker at the TED conference, the former color commentator at the Emmys, and, most surreally, he grilled the President of the United States on his nerd credentials at the Radio and Television Correspondents Dinner in 2009. Currently Hodgman can be heard on his podcast, “Judge John Hodgman,” (http://www.maximumfun.org/shows/judge-john-hodgman) and seen in his one hour special “John Hodgman: Ragnarok” on Netflix (http://www.johnhodgman.com/RAGNAROK).
