Today we visit the apartment of Dave Hill – writer, actor, musician, comedian, man-about-town. His book, “Tasteful Nudes” elicited the following reviews: “I run into Dave Hill all the time at the coffee shop in our neighborhood. He’s always unshaven and badly hungover, with some 16-year-old groupie from Cleveland in tow—and he’s just as funny then as he is in Tasteful Nudes. He is my idol.” —Malcolm Gladwell “Dave Hill speaks, rocks, and now writes with a voice so powerful and funny and compelling that I’m pretty sure he’s channeling some weird god from another dimension. Basically, this dude is a comedic Cthulhu, and when you read this book, you will either go COMPLETELY MAD or BECOME A SLAVE TO HIS MAD GENIUS. Pray for the latter.” —John Hodgman “This book should affirm Dave Hill’s rightful place as a major American humor writer. You will laugh. Buy two and brighten a friend’s life as well.” —Dick Cavett
