I have a new e-book out today: High-Status Characters: How the Upright Citizens Brigade Stormed A City, Started A Scene, And Changed Comedy Forever. It costs $1.99, and all you need to start reading it on your smartphone or tablet is the Nook app, which is free, and ridiculously easy to use.
High-Status Characters started out a few years ago, as a New York magazine oral history. This new version is more than eight times longer than the original, and features interviews with nearly 80 of the UCB’s friends, fans, and performers, including Amy Poehler, Conan O’Brien, Ed Helms, Aziz Ansari, Aubrey Plaza, and Nick Kroll. I think it’s a must-read for comedy fans, but then again, I’m kind of biased.
