H. Jon Benjamin’s Failure Is An Option

Presented in association with Oblong Books & Music
 

H. Jon Benjamin—the lead voice behind Archer and Bob’s Burgers—will help us all feel a little better about our own failures by sharing his own in this hilarious memoir-ish chronicle, Failure Is An Option.

Most people would consider H. Jon Benjamin a comedy show business success. But he’d like to remind everyone that as great as success can be, failure is also an option. And maybe the best option.

In this conversation and in the book, he tells stories from his own life, from his early days (“wherein I’m unable to deliver a sizzling fajita”) to his romantic life (“how I failed to quantify a threesome”) to family (“wherein a trip to P.F. Chang’s fractures a family”) to career (“how I failed at launching a kid’s show”). As Jon himself says, "breaking down one’s natural ability to succeed is not an easy task, but also not an insurmountable one."

This event will include a Q&A and a book signing.
