Event Description:
Hip and homey Battery Books & Music in Pasadena welcomes author Josh Hickman to discuss and sign his new comic novel. Through rifts, marriages, divorces, and an infamous joke-theft scandal, Jerry Tick and Larry Tinn persevered undaunted, spreading laughter through memorable challengers such as the “Pope Lick Monster” controversy, Jerry’s comedy cult involvement, and facing on live television Hobarth Getz, “The Man Who Couldn’t Laugh.” Painstakingly-researched and richly-textured, Through Tick & Tinn: The True Story of the Greatest Unknown Comedy Team Ever Known is Mr. Hickman’s love letter to that beloved dying breed, the American comedy team.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase $15.

Praise for THROUGH TICK & TINN: “This book comes as close to anything I’ve seen to capturing the lifestyle, tribulations and careers of two people who are dependent on each other for laughs and their livelihood.”
~ George Schlatter, Producer, Rowan & Martin’s “Laugh-In,” creator of the American Comedy Awards.
