It’s that time of the year for spiked eggnog, drama filled office parties and unbelievably boring family get togethers. Don’t fear, Bruce Campbell has you covered! Avoid the holiday hassle by snagging the audio version of his NY Times Best Seller, Hail to the Chin.
Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas!
It’s Storytime, Kids!
About a month ago, we reported that Bruce Campbell might have his audio version of his best-selling novel, Hail to the Chin available in time for the holidays. Well, guess what? It happened.
Yesterday on Twitter, Campbell made the announcement:
If you like Bruce Campbell’s acting, then you will definitely enjoy his writing. Hail to the Chin recounts what the actor has called, “Phase Two” of his life. Now, fans of Bruce can enjoy his novel and hear his voice.
It’s just like having him in your living room or riding along with you telling you stories on that boring daily commute to work. Be prepared to laugh out loud though because there are some seriously funny anecdotes in this book.
You will learn what it is like to try and get phone service in a rural area (a real pain in the ass), distilling lavender with Steven Seagal (just wait for it) and his excursion into Iraq to visit the troops with Burn Notice co-star, Jeffrey Donovan.
As a bonus, you will learn more about filmmaking in Bulgaria than you EVER thought possible. Campbell recounts with hilarity his behind the scene struggles as well as some other amusing personal stories. Let’s just say recreational pursuits can breed paranoia and hysterical consequences (just don’t lock your spouse outside your apartment).
A particularly interesting chapter details Campbell’s pilots that he made for various networks. Many of them showed promise but two in particular should have been picked up. One was his late-night film show, Night Cap.
This was the type of program where Bruce would have been in his element. The premise was that he would introduce cult B movie flicks and then perform in skits. Too bad this didn’t make the cut, I bet it would have been a ratings grabber.
Another was called Mission Control and was done for Gary Sanchez productions which is run by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. Bruce in his words played an “idiot NASA administrator” in a sitcom that was like “Mad Men with jokes.” I am certain his fans would have made that into a hit program.
Get the Grooviness
If you haven’t read the book yet, you can pick up a copy at us.macmillan.com. Pair the book with the audio version and have a totally groovy experience.
For those fans that live in the UK, Bruce is hoping to fit in a Hail to the Chin Tour since he will already be there for Walker Stalker Con in London. This interview will give you a taste of what to expect:
