It is inevitable. If you’re in the world of show business you’re going to want to write a book at some point. And Tom Segura is the latest comedian to make the shift into the literary world!
This morning, Segura announced that he wrote a new book, I’d Like To Play Alone, Please. In the book, which comes out June 14th, Segura “combines his signature curmudgeonly humor with a revealing look at some of the ridiculous situations that shaped him and the ludicrous characters who always seem to seek him out. The stories feature hilarious anecdotes about Tom’s time on the road, including some surreal encounters with celebrities at airports;, his unfiltered South American family; the trials and tribulations of parenting young children with bizarrely morbid interests; and, perhaps most memorably, experiences with his dad who, like any good Baby Boomer father, loves to talk about his bowel movements and share graphic Vietnam stories at inappropriate moments. All of this is enough to make anyone want some peace and quiet.”
You can pre-order the book here. It is currently available in print, e-book, and also as an audiobook, read by Segura.
