Although his highest profile gig was the uncool PC in Apple’s long running “Get a Mac” advertising campaign, John Hodgman is also an author, actor, and humorist who is a reoccurring correspondent on The Daily Show with John Stewart.

Hodgman’s new book, “That Is All,” is his third in a series of critically acclaimed satirical compendiums of fake facts. Laid out like a page-a-day calendar, the book presents Hodgman’s witty and absurd musings on a wide range of topics – from the taboos of sea travel to "helpful" foreign phrases. He has also appeared in Tina Fey’s "Baby Mama" and on HBO’s “Bored to Death,” and his work has been featured in The New York Times Magazine, Men’s Journal and on NPR’s popular “This American Life” radio journal program.

WEIGH IN:
