Life in Showbiz in Hollywood and the Midwest

Dan's comedic essays about life in indie film and beyond

Dan Steadman’s book of comedic essays is about life before, during, and after Hollywood: a Brooke Shields wake up call, killer whales in the Pacific, quarantine for a mystery rash, L.A. homelessness, a bloody deer leg in the mailbox from a grocery store stalker, and a Brazilian Brahma bull stampede. Plus filming indie projects with actors Sean Hayes, Octavia Spencer, Jennifer Coolidge, Melissa McCarthy, Tim Bagley, Tony Hale, Gareth Reynolds, Laura Silverman, Jane Wiedlin, Glenn Howerton, Kate Flannery, Mindy Sterling, and more.
