In-Store Signing with Jon Wurster

"Savagely brutal hoax-humor that's not just funny, but a really advanced form of comedy as well. Although many might not have heard of them yet, those in the know have been long aware that Scharpling and Wurster, the Glimmer Twins of comedy, are two of the funniest men in America right now."—The Onion

Jon Wurster, in addition to a lengthy rock drumming resume for acts like the Mountain Goats (with whom he'll be playing with later this evening), Superchunk, Robert Pollard, Bob Mould, and, yes, Charlie Daniels(!), is a writer for TV (Monk, Tim and Eric Awesome Show) and a humorist best known as part of the long-form radio comedy team Scharpling and Wurster (The Best Show on WFMU), who have released five CDs since 1997. More recently, Wurster (@jonwurster) was named the number one "Tweeting Artist You Should Follow," besting the likes of 50 Cent, Kanye West, and Weird Al Yankovic. Stop by tonight before the show where he'll be signing Scharpling and Wurster CDs and chatting up fans of comedy and music.
