Novak is joined by Allison Williams and Anthony Rapp to perform stories from his new book
Selected Shorts takes a decidedly comedic turn tonight with B.J. Novak in the driver's seat. One of the humorists behind the U.S. version of the Office, Novak wrote, co-executive produced and played Ryan Howard, the temp-turned-boss-turned-temp, in the deliriously funny Emmy Award-winning series. Following the show's success, Novak landed a two-book deal with Alfred A. Knopf, and the first book of the deal, One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories, hits shelves (and kindles) on February 4th. Tonight, Novak performs some of his wonderfully entertaining short stories with assistance from Allison Williams (Girls), Anthony Rapp (Rent, If/Then), and Aasif Mandvi (The Daily Show). Selected Shorts radio series commentator Hannah Tinti steps in to host.
