Comedian Michael Ian Black is tackling a great work of literature. Actually, Tackling might be too strong a word. More like “light caressing” plus a lot of complaining. First he read the Thomas Hardy classic, Jude the Obscure.He had help from Jen Kirkman, Mike Birbiglia, Michael Showalter, and even his teenage daughter. Now he's back with a new book to read out loud and comment as he goes. Support this show and access bonus content: https://www.patreon.com/michaelianblack
