    NOTE: Profanity in the video below. Mods, if inappropriate, feel free to change to a link.

    I Found this on NPR this morning, and as I have the book and audio book (it's brilliant; narrated by Samuel L. Jackson), I quipped in the What Are you Reading? thread who could read this book and make it sound funnier or even more out of left field, like Orson Wells, Richard Pryor, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, etc...

    I didn't think that LeVar Burton would be the guy, but he does a bloody good job of it. It's a charity even for the Children's Miracle Network, and his daughter is in the crowd. Enjoy!

    A side note: Mansbach's followup book, You Have To ******* Eat, just dropped today. On my way to the bookstore to pick that one up. My wife and I are going through that phase as well as GTFTS.

    Thanks for posting this. Great listening, and very, very funny.

    Actually, I read the book when it first came out (and have listened to the Samuel L Jackson recording); very clever, true to life, and very, very funny.

    I'd love for Stewart to narrate You Have To ******* Eat. That would be just hilarious.

    And back to Samuel L. Jackson.. I can see him in the blooper reel for the next Avengers movie reading this to the Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, Capt. America, and the Black Widow during a break on the set, with them all being in costume.

    I can just picture that.
