Comedy Comedy Comedy Drama

by Bob Odenkirk


Long before he was known as the notorious main character in Better Call Saul, Bob Odenkirk wrote for Saturday Night Live and created the breakout sketch comedy Mr. Show. And while his career is far from over, Odenkirk has packaged his decades of experience into a memoir about making it in Hollywood.

Filled with amusing anecdotes alongside serious advice, this book recounts the author's career in the entertainment industry. But his 2022 release Comedy Comedy Comedy Drama isn't about becoming a star — it's about doing what you love while staying true to your creative process.
