Comedian John Hodgman in Portland
Author, Comedian and correspondent for “The Daily Show” to bring his unique style of comedy
John Kellogg Hodgman (born June 3, 1971) is an American author, actor, and humorist. In addition to his published written works, such as The Areas of My Expertise, More Information Than You Require, and That Is All, he is known for his personification of a PC in contrast to Justin Long’s personification of a Mac in Apple’s “Get a Mac”advertising campaign, and for his correspondent work on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
His writings have been published in One Story (to which he contributed the debut story), The Paris Review, McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern, Wired and The New York Times Magazine, for which he is editor of the humor section. He contributes to Public Radio International’s This American Life, and CBC Radio One’s Wiretap. His first book and accompanying audio narration, The Areas of My Expertise, a satirical tongue-in-cheek almanac which actually contains almost no factual information, was published in 2005. His second book, More Information Than You Require, went on sale October 21, 2008. His third book, That Is All, went on sale November 1, 2011.
John Hodgman is “The Daily Show’s” Resident Expert, commenting on subjects as diverse as the economy, net neutrality, reptiloids, time travel, elitism, and headlice. Apart from the many fake books he has advertised on the show, scholars agree he has actually written two real books — The Areas of My Expertise and More Information Than You Require, although these books are primarily made up of fake facts. Additionally, Hodgman has worked as a cheese monger, traffic counter, advice columnist, journalist and personal computer. -Comedycentral.com
Hodgman may be an accidental celebrity, but he occupies a familiar position in the entertainment world hierarchy, that of the archly amusing nerd. -LA Times
