*Online* Event: Author Ken Pisani & Comedian/Director Dave Coulier

THURSDAY, AUGUST 13
VIP Pre-Event: 6:00 – 6:45 pm ET
Main Event: 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm ET
Thurber Prize Finalist Ken Pisani in Conversation with Comedian/Director Dave Coulier

Ken Pisani is an Emmy-nominated TV producer and screenwriter, novelist, playwright, and comic book author. His Los Angeles Times best-selling debut novel Amp’d (St. Martin’s Press) was a finalist for the 2017 Thurber Prize for American Humor. Ken has sold network pilots and feature screenplays, events that expired with little fanfare. He’s also the writer-creator of the Geekie Award-winning sci-fi graphic novel Colonus (Dark Horse Comics), and the mystery novella 4 Corners, available on Kindle. Follow Ken on Twitter: @kpsmartypants.

Dave Coulier is a comedian, actor, and director. He is perhaps best known as “Joey” on the hit ABC television series Full House and the Netflix series Fuller House. His extensive voice over credits include Scooby Doo, The Jetsons, The Muppet Babies, and Family Guy. Dave has starred in the Nickelodeon movie Shredderman and Disney Channel’s The 13th Year. He has hosted shows such as ABC’s America’s Funniest People and World’s Funniest Videos, and guest starred on How I Met Your Mother, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The View, The Talk, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Good Morning America, and The Today Show. Dave performs stand up comedy all over the country.

Ken and Dave will be discussing the craft of humor writing and Ken’s novel-in-progress, The Defection and Subsequent Resurrection of Nikolai Pushkin, a decades-spanning farce based on true events. Set in 1989, the novel follows a Soviet hockey player as he defects to the West. As he tries to get to NYC, the disparate lives of a neglected toddler, sullen teen musician, Chinese protester, overzealous KGB agent, and young Vladimir Putin collide with devastating and absurd effects that ripple across decades. It’s a surreal romp through late-’80s world events and into the present.

*THIS EVENT WILL BE HELD ONLINE ON THE ZOOM VIDEO PLATFORM.*
