Chris Gethard’s Book Is Very Likely Hilarious and Weird


Chris Gethard of public access television’s The Chris Gethard Show has written a book called A Bad Idea I’m About to Do: True Tales of Seriously Poor Judgment and Stunningly Awkward Adventure, set for release Jan. 10. It includes such tales as “his volunteering for the ‘Scared Straight’ program (resulting in inmates openly threatening to rape him) or his horrendously botched attempt to fulfill his childhood dream of becoming a pro wrestler. Or the time he instigated a high-speed chase with a New Jersey State Trooper.” Oh boy. I’d say hitting that pre-order button is a good idea you’re about to do. (Sorry.)
