LET’S START A RIOT:

How a Young Drunk Punk Became a Hollywood Dad

By Bruce McCulloch

A biting, funny, always revealing collection of personal stories from the legendary Kid in the Hall, comedian, writer and director, Bruce McCulloch.
Comedian, writer, director and legendary Kid in the Hall Bruce McCulloch chronicles his journey from wild early days as a “young punk” in 1980s Alberta, to his flannel plaid days and futon nights in 1990s Toronto, to becoming a “pajama-clad dad” living in the Hollywood Hills. Taking us from scowling teenager to father of two, this biting, funny collection of personal stories, peppered with moments of surprising poignancy, proves that although this infamous Kid may be all grown up, his singular brand of humor and signature wit remain firmly intact.

BRUCE McCULLOCH is a Canadian actor, writer, comedian and film director. He is best known for his work as a member of the Kids in the Hall, the popular comedy troupe, and as a writer for Saturday Night Live. He directed the films Dog Park, Stealing Harvard and Superstar, and has made two acclaimed comedy/music albums, Shame-based Man and Drunk Baby Project. McCulloch has also recently acted in episodes of Workaholics and the new season of Arrested Development. McCulloch recently returned to TV with the series Death Comes to Town. He currently lives in the Hollywood Hills with his family and tours solo and with KITH for sold-out shows.

Bruce will be doing media for the book during tour stops for the 2015 Kids in the Hall tour, and will be in: New York, Boston, San Francisco, and Los Angeles to name a few.
