Tucson Festival of Books

Bob Odenkirk

Sharon Alagna

Bob Odenkirk is known for acting ("Breaking Bad," "Better Call Saul," the new AMC series "Lucky Hank" and feature films like Greta Gerwig’s "Little Women") and for writing lots of comedy sketches for TV shows ("Saturday Night Live" and "Mr. Show with Bob and David"). In fact, he’s been writing silly stuff his whole life because he sees the world as a mostly funny, pretty ridiculous place. Odenkirk's other books include "A Load of Hooey," a collection of comedic essays, "Comedy Comedy Comedy Drama," his instant New York Times best-selling memoir, but "Zilot & Other Important Rhymes" is the thing he's most proud of in this world. His greatest wish is that you laugh today and he'd very much like to help make that happen.
