BEER AND CHEESE WHIZ EIGHT-FINGERED CRIMINAL'S SON EVENT AT THE BOOK FROG - October 6th, 2012

 
 
The Book Frog Beer and Cheese Whiz Eight-Fingered Criminal's Son event went down  October 6th, 2012.
 
 
I drove out from Phoenix to L.A. Saturday morning. Forgot that L.A. traffic can snarl up at any given time.  I arrived later than expected, but not so late that I couldn't grab a quick burger and a beer with my old comedy pals Bryan Frank and Keith Boyd.

Bryan handled the photography and Keith helped me with the Cheese Whiz and beer. A good lookin' crowd was on hand to hear my reading of "Dave Cruz."


At least one guy though the story was funny. This is Billy Gerten. We attended Saint Joseph's Parish School together.

 
 
Keith Boyd helped me out with "Danny Gilroy's Pencil" flash read, playing the part of Jimmy Dolan. The real Jimmy Dolan had his eye ball knocked from his eye socket. Keith's performance was riveting - and graphic.
 
 


Signing books is always cool because signing books means selling books.


Of course, everybody said Cheese Whiz for the group shot.


This is me with Pete Ledesma and Kurt Morlock. Pete is the owner of the Book Frog and Kurt is the toughest kid ever to come out of Hawthorne High.


The crowd drank all  of the beer but I left the Book Frog with six cans of Cheese Whiz.
